    The British surrender at Yorktown in 1781 is considered "The End" of the Revolutionary war.
    America's first attempt at self governance we know as "The Articles of Confederation". Because it allowed each state to basically be a nation, in 1787, the concept of the Constitution began. It was signed and ratified in 1791 by the 13 colonies.

      And just to add a line or two to that information about our “Articles of Confederation” and our Constitution which evolved from them, those who oppose America’s gun rights, should without doubt see the movie “Sons of Liberty” to learn the importance of those rights and what could again happen in this country without them ! There is no amendment of greater importance than the 2nd !!!

        The way the future looks, we may have to fight for our Country again

          Damn Jimbo, I certainly hope not. This country is becoming so “pussiefied”, that if that ever occured, I am not so sure enough people would show up to beat a few girl scouts !!!
