The American Revolutionary War brought changes. On a large scale, it changed the thirteen American colonies to one independent nation. Some changes were relatively quick. Some changes developed more slowly. It would be another 90 years until slaves were emancipated, and over 140 years until women had the right to vote. However, this historic incident did plant the seeds of change that would eventually bring independence to all.
