Newfoundland and the American Revolutionary War, 1775-1783
The American Revolutionary War that occurred bewteen 1775 and 1783 had a significant impact on Newfoundland fisheries and society.
Initial Impact of the Revolution on Newfoundland
The quarrel between Great Britain and its North American colonies had been brewing for some time, but no one expected a revolt to break out in 1775.
Long Term Impact of the Revolution
It would be misleading to assume that the revolution had no ill-effect on the fisheries.
The Revolution as Opportunity
Many thought the Revolution to be an opportunity to eliminate American competition in the supply trade, even though many residents suffered hardships.
Despite the hardships caused by the American Revolution, or because of them, Newfoundland showed little interest or sympathy for the American cause.
