The War of American Independence marked another bloody episode in the century-long struggle between the British and French empires for world domination, and the events of 1775 and 1776 introduced new elements into the conflict. A period of intense turmoil and upheaval commenced among the peoples and governments of Europe as a result of the new philosophical ideas formulated by the political thinkers of the age and put into a practical document by the American revolutionists. It was the century of the “Enlightenment,” when reason was first turned to the task of explaining in nonreligious terms the nature of man and in scientific terms the behavior of the natural world.
