  • American reveloution 1775 - 1783

    The American Revolution officially began when the Second Continental Congress adopted the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, although fighting had begun in 1775. The French saw the possibility of success and formally joined the Americans by declaring war against Britain. By the time the war ended in 1783, France had borrowed 1500 million livres to finance its involvement in it. Interest payments on this money totalled 50% of the French government's total revenue.
