Causes and Consequences of the American Revolution

By Jessica Angel

Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to examine several plausible causes and consequences for the American revolt against Britain. The most popular causes seem to be: the tyrannical actions of the Mother country; social change within and economic factors affecting the colonies; and the religious and intellectual views shaping the colonists. Likewise, the most obvious consequences include: separation of the Americans from their British parents and a subsequent written constitution; poverty after the American Revolution and the end of the Feudal order; the rise of a secular orthodoxy; and the ascension of democratic and revolutionary ideals, leading to the French and Russian Revolutions. Out of these, perhaps the most important cause and consequence of the American War for Independence was, and still is, the mindset and character of the American people
