Not every revolution can make a crucial change or make improvements in a country. In the American revolution, a great amount of problems remained the same. White men still ruled and dominated the country, slaves and the lower class did not gain more rights to vote, and their life styles are still the same way. However, the thought of independence and representation is still left in the country. They succeeded on gaining independence from Britain, and birth did not decide a person’s destiny. America became the first modern democracy. The American Revolution was no doubt one of the most crucial and influential out of all the revolutions that happened in this world. The American Revolution not only effected the country itself but also inspired and in some ways caused the French Revolution. French citizens decided to rebel against their higher estates partly because the Americans were a successful example. The American Revolution highlighted their idea of independence and representation in their own way.
