Most people will agree that all the following were effects of the American Revolution:

  • Signing of the Declaration of Independence
  • Creation of the Treaty of Paris
  • Increased financial burden on the English
  • The Bill of Rights
  • Articles of Confederation
  • The forming of the constitution
  • Internal political disputes
The effects of the American Revolution When the United States broke away from Britain following the War of Independence, a nation was formed.

The Treaty of Paris could be described as the first effect of the American Revolution, because it was this treaty that signaled Britain's acknowledgment of independent American colonies.

Losing the colonies was a big blow for the English - it affected their economy, and signaled the beginning of the end for the British Empire.

American politics was obviously born in the aftermath of the American Revolution, with the Articles of the Confederation being the first legislative documents passed. The Bill of Rights and the American constitution soon followed.

However, the birth of the United States was not a smooth transition. In fact, the period following independence was marked by great internal disputes and partisan politics (and it looks as if very little has changed, almost 250 years later!)

When a Revolutionary war occurs, it brings social, political and economical changes. Such was the case with the American Revolution. The first change that was caused was egalitariansm.

It brought down the equality of people.
