    Impact on US
    There were a some bumps on the road with the economy after American Revolution. Things did not go as smoothly as they had planned. The colonists were in debt from the war, and because they're not part of Britain's mercantile system anymore, key exports, such as rice and tobacco were lost. Both the English and the colonists used significant amounts of money for the war, and had made more weapons than they needed. Without the aid from the British, America's economy wasn't as stable as it was before the revolution. The Congress tried to solve the problem by printing more money, but the result was many people with fistfuls of worthless money. The people of the New World were hit with inflation, and the loss of many jobs in the urban area. And so, they tried more ways to try and make their money situation disappear. They had realized that the war had some advantages too. The colonists were not bound to the trading limitations that the British had set on them anymore. The Americans really took the fact that they're not under British control to their advantage, and went beyond the Proclamation Line and were able to grow more crops.

    Impact on Canada
    Phenomenal changes were brought by the American Revolution. By breaking free of the mighty British, the Americans proved that freedom was possible to achieve, even when under the control of the most powerful nation at the time. As the British realized that the colonies were independent, British limitations on trade dropped slightly and the Proclamation line disappeared. With the Proclamation line gone, farming and agriculture spread to more fertile areas. This strengthened agriculture and trade. Even though the war hurt the economy, it managed to boost some aspects of trade.

    New Brunswick Was Formed
    Besides Quebec, Nova Scotia also became a very important location for loyalist refugees who escaped to Canada from the bloody American Revolution. (Get the pun there? :D I know, I make lame jokes. T.T) In the maritime area, some of the English settled in the peninsula, Cape Breton, or the colony of Prince Edward Island. However, most of the emigrants moved to the area along the St. John River. The Loyalists were not content with the government, who could not keep up with them, because they were too far away. Therefore, they decided to have their new government and gave themselves the name of New Brunswick, separating from the area of Nova Scotia. This happened in 1784, the new province created by the Order-in-Council in Great Britain with its own governor and assembly.

    of Paris, 17631783
    The Treaty of Paris was the contract which officially ended the wars between Britain and America in the American Revolution. It also created the all important international border between America and British North America. This border is known as the International Boundary, and is the longest common border in the world. This led to the Jay Treaty which created International Boundary Commission, and was in charge of surveying and mapping the boundary later on for changes to what Canada's modern boundary is with the United States of America today.

    ...
    The American revolutionary wars showed separation from any British rule in America, and a new government was required to follow suit. During the wars, the second constitutional congress was called and the need for a document to outline the guidelines of the the governing system in war was decided upon A committee was appointed to draft such a document, and it became the first constitution of America, describing a government separate from the one used when England was in control. Eventually, the people of America became dissatisfied with this Constitution, so the constitutional convention was called (originally, to fix kinks of the old government system and touch up articles of confederation). The end product of this constitutional convention was the United States Constitution. This new constitution was the supreme law of all Americans, and the basis of America's federal system today. The end of the American revolution seriously affected America because it provided the world with the superpower we have today (they would not have been able to remain powerful without a self-sufficient government). The remaining United States Constitution today is still used. It is also a guiding light for emerging nations, regarding rights and freedoms.
    Without the revolution in America, the world would be missing this guiding light and inspiration. Many governmental systems would be lost without a constitution to follow. The American Revolution supplied not only America, but many other countries, with a form of government and set of laws to support today's ever changing society.

    POLITICAL: THEY DIDN’T TRUST THEIR OWN GOVERNMENT
    The thirteen colonies of America followed the Articles of Confederation created by the Second Continental Congress, which caused division between the states. Unfortunately, the government was too weak to solve or stop the conflicts, as any state had the power to reject, change, or propose a change in government. The government had no power to tax even though itwas dependent on the people in order to get financial support. Inflation also appeared in the market due to the lost regulations.

    Supreme Court. All the political power was spread out and not given to one specific person.
    {istockphoto_3972423-business-competition.jpg}
    However, the Americans did not fully trust the government , even though the Constitution did give equal power to the respective states and the people and created a federal government. Everyone got what they wanted. Each person wanted power and wealth for themselves. The one who has all the money was the best. Fighting for power creates competition, which results to internal conflict within the county. Thus, the three colonies of America were not fully united as one whole country. They were being eaten from the inside out, similar to how Rome was attacked by many enemies, yet its strongest enemy was itself. The independence and separation from Britain was achieved, however, it would be a while before America could actually become country with 'united' states.

    - The Boston tea party occurred due to the taxing of tea. This was when several members of the Sons of Liberty started dumping tea from English ships into the harbor. They were dressed as Indians and making fools out of themselves. Their goal was to create reactions in the people and show the British exactly what they thought about the new taxation. This made the British even more furious then before. {Boston_Tea_Party3.jpg}

    - The creation of the Sons of Liberty; a secret society, who used violence against anyone who supported the King and the British, using methods such as tarring and feathering. They were the main force of the American Revolution because their works was use to basically threaten the British to give them the independence they wanted, and was also a fear tactic that made many colonists come to the radical revolutionist's side and go against the British. Their motto “Join or Die” was used to fear and inspire colonists at the same time, showing the Americans that they must join them and that if they do, America could become an independent and powerful country.

    #00AD8A
    Art played a significant part in the American Revolution and the reasons why the colonies won the war. The propaganda and publicity stunts by the colonists were used to show that they did not want the British controlling them. By publicizing events such as the Boston Tea Party and the Tarring and Feathering, the Sons of Liberty has spread the awareness of the issue around. Not only did they want to spread the awareness, but in order to start a new nation, they had to create something that would unite not just the people, but their hearts and minds too. Many important pieces of writing such as the Declaration of Independence, which was signed on July 4th, 1776, to separate the colonists from the British Empire after the 7 Years War. In the late 1775, Thomas Paine wrote a pamphlet, “Common Sense,” that presented the American colonists with an argument for freedom from the British before the Declaration of Independence was written. It was published during the first month of 1776 and gained popularity quickly due to the style and structure it was written.
