What Countries Fought In The Revolutionary War ?  

The American Revolutionary War is also known as the American War of Independence. It was one of the biggest wars in history and was fought between America and at least thirteen other former British colonies. It became a global war and many super powers at that time were involved in fighting Britain.

The war was mainly fought on the American soil and the claim is that more than six hundred thousand lives were lost and there were several more unaccounted lives which were lost in the war. Several countries like France, Spain, and Dutch Republic were fighting the British. One of the countries that helped America to fight the British was France and it led to America’s Independence in the end.

The main reason for war was the rejection of the British government and an opposition to their rule without consent. The Americans formed their own Congress and declared that they were not controlled by the British government or by its laws. This is how the Americans declared the independence and called the new nation, the United States of America.

France supported the Americans in the war in 1778 and Spain and Dutch Republic were the French Allies. Great Britain was fighting three powerful countries and in the end in 1782, four years after the war began, they gave up and declared truce with America. They started withdrawing all their soldiers from America including South Carolina and New Jersey. However, in the process of gaining independence, there were several battles fought almost in all the states of the US.
