Does the American Revolutionary War have any link to the Civil War?

Not much. About the only link between the Revolutionary War and the Civil War is that the Civil War resulted from the decision made during the Revolutionary to keep slavery in a country (and slave holder President Thomas Jefferson) that said; "All Men are Created Equal". In 1776, the double standard of the USA regarding slavery was known far and wide. In England it took William Wilberforce and the Captain John Newton song, "Amazing Grace" to bring an end to slavery. In the USA, it took a Civil War, Frederick Douglas and President Abraham Lincoln to bring an end to slavery. Apart from the slavery issue, I can't think of any other link between the Revolutionary War and the Civil War.

How were the American state constitutions different from those of Great Britain?

Great Britain has what is considered to be an unwritten constitution. Certain understandings exist, about the nature of British government, but they are not in the form of any written document. Britain has a much longer history than the US, and in the middle ages, nations did not have constitutions, they just had rulers who made up their own rules and enforced them by force of arms. In Britain this gradually evolved into a democratic form of government, without ever having a constitutional convention, such as the American colonies had, following the Revolutionary War.
