Wynton Marsalis, an American trumpeter once said, “Many a revolution started with the actions of a few. Only 56 men signed the Declaration of Independence. A few hanging together can lead to a nation to change.” The American Revolution happened between 1763 and 1783. Because of the taxation put onto the American colonists, they declared their independence from the British. This was the first time that any colony in the world have declared its independence from the “home country”. Becoming an evidence that a few can lead to a great change, the American Revolution was one of the fascinating revolutions that happened around the world.
