Was the American Revolution closer to a Civil War?

Posted by: ChosenWolff

  • It was American vs American, so more along the lines of civil war rather than revolution

  • It has some aspects, but it is leaning more towards revolution

  • It was British and others vs British and government.

  • Most historians call it a civil war. Even Wikipedia (reliable).Not only were most of the combatives American, but technically it was a british vs british war at the time.

  • Even the civil war wasn't a civil war. It was a revolution.

  • The "Civil War" or War for Southern independence was fought over two different countries as the CSA wanted freedom from the federal gov.

Texans14 ... I humbly disagree with your remark above. The Civil War WAS a civil war, by definition. Http://dictionary.Reference.Com/browse/civil+war, http://dictionary.Reference.Com/browse/Revolution?S=t
