The war 

On July 14,1789 French Americans inspired by the revolutionary cause signed the declaration of independence and sent a copy to the French monarchy in response King Louis sent a French army of 20,000 to keep the colonies under French control but as the French revolution grew worse Louis had the French army sent back to France which showed the colonists that the French monarchy is weakening and has no control over them. On August 10,1792 the French revolutionary army stormed the Tuileries palace and captured King Louis and kept him prison until January 21,1792 when he was executed the French American colonists thinking the French republic would recognize their independence sent a copy of the declaration of independence to the French government the national convention had a huge debate on whether to keep America or recognize their independence one half voted to recognize the Americans independence the other half voted to keep America in the end the national convention decided to keep America and sent a army led by politician Maximilien Robespierre the the colonists created the national guard and the continental army in response. On April 23 1792 the French revolutionary army fought the American national guard at new York which ended in a French victory Maximilien ruled over the city with iron fist and executed anyone suspected of being a patriot the French government called half of Robespierre's army back to France to help with the war with Prussia. After a year of fighting the Americans recaptured New York Maximilien took his remaining soldiers and made a stand at the new York statehouse. On July 3,1793 the citizens of New York and the national guard stormed the New York statehouse killing nearly all of Maximilien's troops Robespierre was then captured and executed by angry New Yorkers. the French government decided to recognize The American independence on July 4,1793 the French army left the United States which celebrated as independence day
