The United States of America declared independence in 1776 because the British government insisted on its control over lands and seas in this part of the world. A lot has been written about British sovereignty over western lands and the frontier origins of the American Revolution. Comparatively little is known about British efforts to manage American's use of the Atlantic Ocean. The British government considered Americans who violated the sovereignty of the seas to be pirates. And the British navy dealt harshly with pirates.
