The American Revolution, also referred to as the American War of Independence, refers to the period during the last half of the 18th century in which the Thirteen Colonies that became the United States of America gained independence from the British Empire. In this period, the Colonies rebelled against the British Empire and entered into the American Revolutionary War between 1775 and 1783. This culminated in an American declaration of independence in 1776, and victory on the battlefield in 1781.
