When did the American Revolution start?

The American Revolution began on April 19, 1775, with the Battles of Lexington and Concord. These battles were fought between the British army and the colonial militia of Massachusetts, and they marked the beginning of the armed conflict that would ultimately lead to the American colonies’ independence from Great Britain. The Revolution was a pivotal event in American history, as it resulted in the formation of the United States of America and the establishment of a new nation based on principles of democracy, freedom, and individual rights. The war lasted for over eight years, and it involved significant military and political struggles that ultimately resulted in the signing of the Treaty of Paris in 1783, which officially ended the conflict.
