Best Answer

The American War for Independence is often called a "revolution" (or, said to be "revolutionary") precisely because it was, by definition, just that. As an overthrow by diplomatic and military means of the established government, the American cause, though deemed to be just and necessary by those supporting it, was undeniably a revolution against the British ruling authority.
