I know I'm late, but I'm the only one to post a Happy 4th of July USA ?!? 😮 It had many of the major players at the time, Americans, Brits, French, Germans, Indians/indigenous peoples, African slaves, etc.

It was a war that did change the World … some would say for the better, others for the worse. We are friends & allies today with all the Europeans involved.

Happy 4th of July USA !!!! 🧨💥🧨💥🧨💥🧨💥🧨💥🧨💥

(insert 'America late to the party' joke here)

Who would say it changed for the worst?
Sure, the Brits would have liked to win but
in losing and the US being created how is this worse?

America is never late to the party, nor is it early to the party. It arrives precisely when it means to. ;-)

To paraphrase Dave on the couples' retreat, now it's a party.

Pettygree. 5 responses on the first and 15 on the second.

For the worse?

Seriously?

Don't, Deucey. Just don't. You can do politics anywhere.

Wow !!! Sorry I missed it … old fart

For Worse … without getting political, some say a number of negative things about this. If they don't won't to celebrate the 4th … "No BBQ for you !" 🍔🥩🍗🍖🍻🍺🥃

The Indian tribes tho their destruction may have happened anyway

Probably, since by the time of the Revolution, the UK (which includes Scotland) and Spain had already started the destruction.

+1 raylev … But that fact may not fit the narrative some are trying to push.
