There were many negative and positive effects of the Revolutionary War.


Positive Effects:

  • America gained its independence.
  • Britain lost its standing as an "undefeated country."
  • Democracy was able to spread and develop.

Negative Effects:

  • Many American and British soldiers had died during the war.
  • France had helped Americans during the Revolutionary War. After the war ended, France was left with huge debts. This later caused the French Revolution.
  • The Continental Army went home after the war, leaving the United States undefended (though the states had state militia troops that protected the country).
