The World Turned Upside Down

The American Revolution was the first instance in history where a country broke free from its ruler. The idea of independence came from the people, who realized that a tiny island across the sea should not be able to rule their entire country. The Boston Massacre of 1770 was what mainly sparked the revolution. The colonist patriots saw how ruthless and cruel the British were (from their perspectives, at least), and began to demand change. It ended with the Battle of Yorktown, 1781. Over the course of a long seven years, America finally broke away from Britain and could call themselves their own country. This video explains five turning points of the American Revolution.
