How the American Revolution Spurred Independence Movements Around the World

How the American Revolution Spurred Independence Movements Around the World

The American Revolutionary War from 1775 to 1783 was not an isolated incident. Rather, the war was the first in a series of revolutions in Europe and the Americas that lasted into the mid-19th century.

The revolutions in the Americas were largely about breaking free from European colonial rule. In Haiti, where 90 percent of the population was enslaved on the eve of its revolution, the war for independence was specifically about abolishing slavery along with European colonial rule. In Europe, some of the revolutions concerned breaking away from larger empires. However, many, like the French Revolution, were internal movements that sought to overthrow monarchies.
