There is one war that the United States of America gained independence from and after that this country was not only a country but a nation united as one. The American Revolution was this war and it had a huge impact on shaping this country. This war lasted from April 19, 1775 through September 3, 1783. Throughout all these years there were many up and downs and some tragic loses, but America pulled through and fought strong and proud. During this time many battles were fought causing the victory of the United States.

From 1776 to 1870 United States of America changed in many ways, among those ways were social and political. The Declaration of Independence, 1776 written primarily by Thomas Jefferson had a remarkable affect the current day, by paving the way for all that the United States has now. Without this key document and then independence from Britain may never have came. The importance is not with the Declaration of Independence itself, but the ideas and thoughts that caused it to be written.
There were ambiguities in the treaty regarding the exact border with Canada that led to disputes that were resolved by the Webster–Ashburton Treaty in 1842.

In the early stages of the war, the U.S had an advantage because there was also an ongoing war between Britain and France.

I believe that the American Revolution was revolutionary because there were many events, impacts, and effects after the war was over. When something is “Revolutionary” it means that it causes a dramatic or drastic change. In 1776, the Declaration of Independence was written all because the people needed to be heard, from document 2. What if the King listened, would there still have been a war? I do not believe so because so much time was spent trying to get the people
The American Revolution, which lasted from 1775 to 1783, began with tension, anger, and restriction. However, the outcome led to a free country known as the United States of America. The American Revolution has many effects on today’s modern country, including the Declaration of Independence and the abolition of slavery. The Declaration of Independence was fought persistently, and it had a great outcome on American colonies.
The American Revolution is the most important event that happened in world history because it is the creation of the United States. To emphasize, The Unites States of America would not be the unified and the independent country it is today. The Revolution offered many Americans the gratitude feeling of having freedom. The first thing to remember is that the American Revolution first began as an argument between the American colonist and the British over the empire of North America. The colonists had been allowed virtual self government for a century until the British government became more involved after the French and Indian war.

History has been impacted by many choices made by high authorities throughout the world. In the United States, geographic factors influenced the government decision to make the Louisiana Purchase and pass the Proclamation of 1763. These decisions both benefitted and hindered the U.S. The Proclamation of 1763 was a conflicting time, despite the actions initially being thought of as a betterment for the U.S.
In the 1760’s, Spain granted the territory west of the Mississippi River to France. This was a success for France because this territory held the powerhouse of trading along the river. New Orleans, the key city, and Louisiana rested in this territory. France began to take the United States permission to use the river for trading. This was a huge drawback for the U.S. because goods would be floated to New Orleans along the river and then shipped overseas.
Let’s imagine that Napoleon didn’t have a need for the allotted money for the French war efforts so he decided not sell the Louisiana Territory or the Louisiana Purchase to the United States. The history of the United States would have been very different if we didn’t obtain the purchase of the Louisiana territory from the French specifically Napoleon because it would have changed the activities and regions in the United States a great deal. If this didn’t happen to begin with, The United States wouldn’t have a been a region ranging from coast to coast. This meaning that the United States would have not been doubled the size that it was previously.
The purchasing of the Louisiana Territory promoted Jefferson’s vision for the country because his plans for this nation depended on western expansion as well as access to the international markets for American farmer products. His vision was threatened when France gained control of Louisiana. Napoleon threatened to block American access to the New Orleans port. Napoleon, for a number of reasons, most to do with money, offered the Louisiana territory to the US for a minimal amount. The US now owning the Louisiana territory more than doubled its size overall.
French Louisiana: Economics and Development When Louisiana was first settled in 1699 by French immigrants, the colonies of the newly formed state were in an impoverished, unprofitable position. The colonies' destitution was due to the lack of resources provided by their new land and government, as well as France's political and economic negligence. However, after long years of poverty, the colony would one day turn a profit by trading their naturally occurring precious metals for paper money and land. Though the early settlers had been drawn to America with enticing tales of wealth and freedom, France was unable to finance it's settlements; the country's national bank had already been depleted by various European wars.
