Thirteen colonies which are now a part of United States of America were initially colonies of Great Britain. People were discontented with the British rule and rebels evoked among the colonies. People were getting exhausted of the horrendous taxes that were imposed on them. In 1746, the Revenue Act made it obligatory for the King to tax the thirteen colonies whether they liked it or not which eventually led to a war. The local practices, social and religious customs of the Americans were swerving ominously from the English ways and added to the budding causes of conflicts. Mercantilism and Navigation Acts were policies favoured by the British in order to control trade in British interest; however these were loosely enforced allowing colonies to grow spontaneously with negligible intrusion from the British.

The Treaty of Paris officially documented the new nation in 1783 with many questions still unanswered. United Stated splashed through a post war depression only to confront administrative problems under the Articles of Confederation.

The new leaders of the country were people who were visible on the Revolution fields or council halls and the country’s first three Presidents were George Washington, John Adams and Thomas Jefferson. The more radical leaders of the Revolution were unhappy with the turn towards obscurantism once the war was over, but democracy and liberty had now been secured as the utmost ideals of the free nation.

The Revolution had an inordinate impact on liberal beliefs all over Europe. The scuffles and achievements of the young democracy were much in the thoughts of those who brought about the French Revolution, and most definitely later helped to stimulate revolutionists in Spain's American colonies.
