The initial dispute between the metropolis and its colonies was about additional taxes that England intended to raise in America. Effective Independence will not be signed until 1783, after a long War of Independence in which France, always happy to oppose the English, came to bring its reinforcement to the Americans.

The Declaration of Independence of 1776, however, took the rank of a national holiday because it constitutes the first political text, issued from the writings of liberal philosophers and Enlightenment, which officially establishes the fundamental rights of men and the just powers of governments.

To better understand the sequence of historical events and the various alliances between European powers and American colonies, we must go back to the Seven Years War (1756-1763). Main armed clash of the XVIIIth century, it is considered as the first war of global proportions as it unfolds on several continents and involves two opposing alliances.

The two leading opponents are France and Great Britain with their first colonial empires, but by the game of agreements and opportunism, the conflict includes Prussia alongside the British, against Austria, Russia, and the United States. Spain (and its colonial empire of South America) alongside France.

If the European stake is on Silesia, whose loss by Austria in 1742 during the War of Austrian Succession will be confirmed, the center of the conflict revolves around the North American rivalry between France and England.

By the Treaty of Paris of 1763, France, whose navy was decimated, lost among other things its two great American possessions, that is to say, New France, renamed Province of Quebec by the King of England ( except St. Pierre and Miquelon) and Louisiana stretching from the Rocky Mountains to the Atlantic. The spirit of revenge on the English enemy of all time will not leave her and a good opportunity will arise, precisely in America, with the insurgents of the British colonies.
