I find it very interesting that American revolution was a political revolt that failed to make changes in society. I am aware that the american war of independence is often said to be a revolution that established democracy, i also find it interesting that it was in fact merely a defense og existing democratic institutions against britians attempt to circumvent them to increase its revenues from the colonies. the american revolution actually fascinates me and i have learned alot about it.

Yeah the funny thing is that the only revolution around that time period to actually make changes in society is one that was never considered a revolution. The Germans had a political revolution, a battle fought with words rather then bullets, in order to change their out dated system of law that was in dire need of rewriting. But due to its bloodlessness it was viewed more like the passing of a bill then something akin to American or French revolution.
