When did people begin to address the American Revolution as such? I know for a fact the term 'revolution' was restricted to the astronomical domain until around 1789, so it couldn't have been contemporary. Was it a retroactive naming after the French Revolution? But who started it and why?

Pretty obvious, Americans trying to take credit.

Basically >american >revolution should be a meme on the same tier as >holy >roman >empire.

Glorious Revolution 1688 fuck off and die.
>>
>>299658
You ever think that might have been a name given to it later?
OED gives the French révolutionner's first use as 1789 in political contexts, first similar use of revolution in English as 1805.

You ever read?

>The expression "Glorious Revolution" was first used by John Hampden in late 1689 [In testimony before a House of Lords committee in the autumn of 1689 (Schwoerer, L.G. (2004). The Revolution of 1688–89: Changing Perspectives. Cambridge University Press. ISBN 0-521-52614-0., p. 3)]

You could have started off with the source rather than just memeing "i'm right ur rong feg".
>>
Interestingly, the term 'revolution' was used back then to describe the opposite of what it did in 1789: not the reversal of order but its reformation. The astronomical metaphor is a case in point here, heavenly bodies go through 'revolution' to return to the same position.

Or you could do the most basic research and be familiar with massive renovations in English protestant law, as if that had anything to do with a bunch of too dumb to run a sugar death camp catholic bastards and luther lovers.
>>
>>299748
Thomas Morus had more sense in his head than an entire army of protestant usurpers. Via media my ass.
>>
>>299755
If works set you free I hope you find them in a camp like Solly did.
>>
>>299765
Better than finding them on a toilet bowl like Martin did. Or on the scaffold like Henry's wives.

>>299781
There is a place beyond orthodox and heterodox, pope and patriarch, prince and priest, Luther and other liars. omnia sunt communia

We should just call it the American war of independence

It was originally called "The Freedom War", or "The War of British Aggression" by Americans, but British scholars shilled the named "American Revolution".
