Did you know that the US military has a rich history dating back to the Revolutionary War? So, let’s take a look at the foundation of the American Army and how it has evolved over time.
The United States military has a long and rich history dating back to the Revolutionary War.
The Revolutionary War was fought from 1775 to 1783, and it represented the first conflict between the Thirteen Colonies and Great Britain. The primary cause of the war was the British desire to impose taxes on the colonies without their representation in Parliament. The Americans responded by forming the Continental Congress and issuing the Declaration of Independence, which asserted their autonomy from Great Britain.
The British were initially successful in suppressing the rebellion, but they eventually lost the war after a string of defeats beginning with the Battle of Saratoga in 1777. The Treaty of Paris, which ended the war, recognized America’s independence and granted them sovereignty over a large territory west of the Appalachian Mountains.
