The American Revolution was a massive uprising that lasted for eight years, from 1775 to 1783. The American Revolution is one of the most significant revolutions in the world. In European books, it is called “the American Revolution” and also as “the American War of Independence.”

In 1492, the explorer Christopher Columbus arrived in the Bahamas while sailing in the Caribbean Sea. After the conquest of Constantinople by the Ottoman Turks in 1453, European nations sought to establish new colonies. The result was the annexation of Sri Lanka by the British colonies from 1796 to 1948.

Attempts to consolidate power in the chosen colony of North America were unsuccessful. By 1573, a British colony had been established in the United States but failed. It was their first attempt to create a settlement.

Although countries such as Portugal, the Netherlands, Britain, Spain, and France have tried to establish colonies in North America, only Great Britain has succeeded. By 1756, 13 British colonies established in North America. Several significant factors influenced the European nation to create its power in America.

1. Aim to acquire the wealth, land, and freedom needed to lead a more comfortable life.

2. Religious conflicts in Europe at that time. (Religious Reforms of the Renaissance.)

3. The aim of gaining a reputation for the country by discovering new areas.

By the latter half of the 17th century, Great Britain became to known as “the empire on which the sun never sets”, while expanding its power in North America.

When the explorer Christopher Columbus arrived in the Bahamas in the Caribbean in 1492, the Red Indians lived there. When the explorer Christopher Columbus landed in North America, he thought the land was a part of India. That is, as South India. But it was Amerigo Vespucci who discovered that the area was North America, not South India. The land was named America in his honour.

Although the Red Indian community living in North America was tribal, they lived a very organized life. They are engaged in animal farming as well as in agriculture. The Red Indians were a nature-loving and adaptable community. But the Europeans made the Red Indians miserable and made North America their colony, completely upsetting the daily lives of the Red Indians.

As I mentioned earlier, the British established the first of the 13 colonies in the United States, the state of Virginia in 1706, and finally the state of Georgia in 1733. Virginia followed by Massachusetts, New York, New Hampshire, Maryland, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Salvador, North Carolina, New Jersey, South Carolina, Pennsylvania, and finally Georgia.

Each of these colonies faces the Atlantic Ocean. This reason is that the British rulers used ports to boost trade in North America. The struggle for independence from the British Empire by these states together is known as the American Revolution. The British Empire established the American colonies, not for the benefit of the European people living there, but for the rulers to enrich Britain. The reasons for the beginning of this Revolution, which lasted for eight years, were added centuries ago.

In 1606, King James I of England established two major companies in Britain during this period to establish colonies. They were called Lyman and Virginia. In 1607, the Virginia Company established in North America as the state of Virginia.

I have previously referred to the struggle for independence of the British Empire as the American Revolution.

In this way, why was freedom sought? 

All the colonists came together and formed one state in America. It was called the United States. Also, it did not happen by chance. The British maintained the colony to their advantage. The British took the raw material from North America to their home country, processed the goods, and sold them back to the United States. Potatoes, as well as tobacco, were introduced to the world by the people of Virginia. Slaves used for agriculture in these colonies. It was the Africans who used as slaves. The slaves were sent to the United States by France, then the world’s most significant slave trade.

The state of Virginia was founded in 1606 by an officer named Walter Raleigh during the reign of King James I. He was joined by 43 others to form the colony. After Walter Raleigh, an officer named Captain John Smith, appointed to the post.

Ultimately, the uprising will end with the drafting of a constitutional system. It headed by George Washington. He brought together all the states in America. It was then difficult for Britain to maintain its power. Ultimately, the result of this American Revolution is a constitutional system.
