Welcome to the new American Revolution section of the History Guy website. This section will continue to grow as we examine the American Revolution, its causes, consequences, and the details of the war itself. We will cover the military battles and campaigns, the personalities involved in the Revolution, as well as those people associated with the events leading up to the war, and those involved with the post-war Confederation period and the events leading up to the writing and adoption of the United States Constitution. The issue of slavery will be examined, as well as the economic issues that helped create a new nation.
