The American Revolution has been characterized politically as a united political uprising of the American colonies and militarily as a guerrilla campaign of colonists against the inflexible Britishmilitary establishment. Daniel Marston argues that this belief, though widespread, is a misconception. He contends that the American Revolution, in reality, created deep political divisions in the population of the Thirteen Colonies, while militarily pittingveterans of the Seven Years' War against one another, in a conflict that combined guerrilla tactics and classic eighteenth century campaign techniques on both sides. The peace treaty of 1783 that brought an end to the war marked the formal beginning of the United States of America as an independent political entity.Contents: Introduction · Chronology · Background to war: Colonial agitation · Warring sides: Linear and irregular warfare · Outbreak: Shot heard round the world · The fighting · Portrait of a soldier: Massachusetts professional · The world around war: War on the homefront · Portrait of a civilian: Boston loyalist · How the war ended: Stalemate · Conclusion and consequences: Influence of the American Revolution
