|Who||The Revolutionary War was between England and the 13 colonies. The 13 colonies won the war, but both sides had used so much money in the war that they almost went bankrupt. After the war, England had to find a new source of income, since trade in the colonies was where they got a lot of their money. The United States of America, the new name of the 13 colonies, had to figure out a plan of government now that they were no longer controlled by
|What||The Revolutionary War happened when the 13 British colonies wanted independance from British rule. They finally got it, when the British surrendered on April 11th, 1783. After the war, there were some big changes on both sides. Americans didn't have to live under British Rule anymore, and they were free to make their own government, emphasizing our natural rights. Things weren't all perfect after the war, though. Our founding fathers knew that it would be tough to build a succesful government, especially just after a war.|
|When||The Revolutionary War started in 1775, after colonists had been settling in the 13 colonies for over a hundred years, and dealing with a lot of unfair rule from Britain. After a series of injust taxes and laws, they decided to start a revolution. It ended in 1783, but it affected both Britain and the United States for many years after.|
|Where||The Revolution took place and affected many places. Battles took place in just about all of the colonies, and many also took place by ship in the Atlantic ocean. Britain, of course, was affected economically and in other ways. When France entered the war on the side of the colonies, they became very much affected also.|
|Why||All these places were very affected by the war because they put lots of money, people, and time into it. After the war, they lost lots of money, and trade, especially in the states, was affected because they were a new country, without many alliances at that point. They had gotten almost all of their trade from England. England lost most of their land in North America.
