Also commonly referred to as America’s War Of Independence, the Revolutionary War lasted from 1775 to 1783 and featured thirteen North American colonies fighting against Great Britain, in hopes of declaring their independence. These colonies fought for almost a decade, and though Great Britain was eventually defeated, many American soldiers were killed.
In order to pay homage to this tragic event, while also giving our readers an interesting list to scroll through, we’ve compiled some of the internet’s best Revolutionary War memes.
