The American Revolutionary War, also known as the U.S. War of Independence, was fought between Great Britain and her Thirteen Colonies from 1775 to 1783. Tired of the heavy taxation by the British Government and the underwhelming representation of the colonies in the British Parliament, the colonists began fighting for their independence. It was the making of America with great heroes such as George Washington, Samuel and John Adams, and Benjamin Franklin who stepped forward to define the U.S. and declare independence from Great Britain in 1776 with the Declaration of Independence.
