The American Revolution was a Civil War as much as the American Civil War was a Revolution the differences are basically that in the Revolution the American people had no true voice the House of Commons or the House of Lords though Benjermin Franklin was the American Represenative he was usually out voted on eveything reguarding america. With the Civil War the South had a voice in congress but due to the larger number of Northern and free states the south really had no major say. It is hard to say these two wars and events are different but the events of the Revolution set up the events of the wars to come after (Excluding the Mexican War). In the end it was Taxation that caused the revolution and the revolution could even be considered the first true World War.
