More about US Revolutionary War
The Revolutionary War formally began on April 19, 1775, at Lexington, Massachusetts. Colonists felt they were being unfairly taxed by Great Britain, and when negotiations failed to produce a solution, a militia gathered to fend off a munitions seizure by British troops at Lexington and Concord. Within a few months, George Washington assumed command of the Continental Army, and the conflict spread from North Carolina and Charleston in the south to Canada in the North. The Revolutionary War lasted eight years, during which the colonies would unite under the Declaration of Independence as the United States of America. The war ended on September 3, 1783, when Great Britain signed the Treaty of Paris and recognized the independence of the US.
