Happy First American Revolution Day!

Happy First American Revolution Day! The United States was born out of a revolutionary struggle against British imperialism. For the first time a colonial revolution threw off the rule of the most powerful military force on Earth. The events in the thirteen colonies in the late 1700s proved to be an inspiration worldwide. On the heels of the American Revolution the French Revolution was to topple the rule of Louis XVI and the Haitian Revolution was to thoroughly uproot the institution of slavery on that island. The American Revolution was to also inspire the colonial revolutions of the post-World War II period, from Cuba to Vietnam.

Today, the United States is the world’s largest imperialist power, but the working class of the United States has a revolutionary heritage that it will once again discover in the struggles of the future. We direct our readers’ attention to the following articles that highlight some of the key points of the First American Revolution.
