It was a monarchy with King George III as King. Rumour has it that he was not all together in his head which was one of the reasons why America won the war.

Actually whoever said ^^ was wrong it was a limited monarchy!

All of the English colonists in North America had lived under a limited monarchy in England. This is a monarchy where the king or queen do not have absolute power but are restricted by written rules he/she must follow.

The American government before the Revolution was similar to what we have today. The idea that the people would have a part in their government was part of the reason many chose to travel to the new world.

American Revolution (1775-1783), conflict between 13 British colonies in North America and their parent country, Great Britain. It was made up of two related events: the American War of Independence (1775-1783) and the formation of the American government as laid out by the Constitution of the United States in 1787. First, the war achieved independence from Great Britain by the colonies. Second, the newly created United States of America established a republican form of government, in which power resided with the people.
