WHY

Why Learn Revolutionary History?

First Nation

The American Revolution secured the independence of the United States from the dominion of Great Britain and separated it from the British Empire.

The United States was the first nation in modern times to achieve its independence in a national war of liberation and the first to explain its reasons and its aims in a declaration of independence

First Republic

The American Revolution established a republic, with a government dedicated to the interests of ordinary people rather than the interests of kings and aristocrats.

The United States was the first large republic since ancient times and the first one to emerge from the revolutions that rocked the Atlantic world, from South America to Eastern Europe, through the middle of the nineteenth century.

National Identity

The American Revolution created American national identity, a sense of community based on shared history and culture, mutual experience and belief in a common destiny.

A Nation of Ideals

The American Revolution committed the new nation to ideals of liberty, equality, natural and civil rights, and responsible citizenship and made them the basis of a new political order.
