Abstract: The American Revolution is one of the most important events in the world's history and it's, with the French Revolution, one of the evidences that shows the transition between the Early Modern History and the Modern History. The struggles that happened between 1775 and 1783 are well known but it's interesting to study and analyze the different points of view and the different interpretations of the historians during history about this period. The purpose of this work is to analyze the different historical tendencies and compare each one with the others, focusing on the most important historians of each tendency and their best works and books. The Wigh historians and the Neo-Whig historians, with their differences, have a common trait that's try to explain the Revolution through its ideals, and make them the main explanation about why the Revolution happened. Progressives and Neo-Progressives, with their differences also, are trying to explain the Revolution not using romantic ideas but using numbers, statistics and the study of the society. Imperialists have another point of view, they interpret the revolution as a lack of understand between the British and the Americans where no one is guilty of tyranny nor evilness.
