It can be understood from analysis of the literature and from various viewpoints that American Revolution has caused great impacts on the society. It has instilled in people the need to develop independence. There has been a lot of discussion among the people in America that the American Revolution is conservative. This was also echoed in Wood’s ideology. It also explains about the number of ways in which the societies had started to embrace independence. In the views of Wood, it has been said that the people immediately embraced republicanism that this was a radical ideology given the circumstances of the situation.
There has been mixed reviews regarding the impact of American Revolution on slavery. Even though the ideology of Nash seems agreeable that it cannot be denied that these acts of discussions of independence had influenced the slavery movement. Nash deduction is imagination and ideology. In reality, the act of American Revolution had caused slavery movement to end. There is an obvious connection between the two as the people started to voice their views about individual liberties in the societies. This was an important aspect that had led to the end of slavery in America. The political landscape of America and the world would have been very different if the American Revolution had not taken place. With these arguments, it can be understood that the importance of American Revolution and the real reasons for contending that American revolution was radical.
The stand taken in the beginning of the essay is that American Revolution was radical. The reasons considered for taking this view are that republicanism in the society is a stark change to the monarchy in the society. It had created a situation where all the people in the society saw a different form of governance that had marked by freedom and liberty. More importance was given to independence of the people. This may not have caused destructions like the French revolution, but it had caused major impact similar to other radical revolutions in history.
Without the declaration of independence, it is difficult to assume that slavery would have ended. There are a number of actions that American independence had caused. It had caused changes in the grass root level of the society. It had instilled changes and imparted freedom. The real question that the people should ask is if American Revolution did not happen, will the society be the same. The answer is no American independence had set forth a series of events and had been radical and important in every step of the way. From a personal standpoint and from analysis of the facts, it can be understood that American Revolution has been radical and has caused a positive impact on the societies.
