American War For Independence: 1775-1783

Frustrated by Britain’s increasing taxes and rules, the American Colonies tried to reconcile the situation peaceable…no success. In 1776 the Declaration of Independence was signed, formally severing ties with Britain. If the American could win the war, they would be an independent nation. With foreign aid, the Americans won strategic victory and gained their independence.
