The American Revolutionary War, also known as the American War of Independence, lasted from 1775 - 1783. It began as a war between Great Britain and the thirteen united colonies in America. The war was the peak of the American Revolution, when colonists rebelled against Parliaments right to govern them without representation. The War ended in 1783 with the Treaty of Paris that recognized the sovereignty of the United States over the territory bounded by what is now Canada to the north, Florida to the south, and the mississippi River to the west.
