Miffed by British Monarch George III's refusal to address the colonists' grievances presented by the First Continental Congress in 1774, the Second Continental Congress issued the Declaration of Independence in 1776 (on 4th July) and won the war that followed.Since the colonists were able to establish de facto sovereignty effective from 1776, that year is deemed to be the year when America gained independence.

Technically speaking, in 1783 the war was over. And in 1776 they declared the independence. There are other dates of independence as well but this is authentic.

The United States Declaration of Independence is a statement adopted by the Continental Congress on July 4, 1776, which announced that the thirteen American coloniesthen at war with Great Britain were now independent states, and thus no longer a part of the British Empire.

It didn't. England ceased to exist as a political entity 69 years before the Declaration of Independence in 1776.
The Treaty of Paris in 1783 established independence for the United States from the United Kingdom of Great Britain (formed from the merger of the Kingdom of England and the Kingdom of Scotland in 1707). The next question has to be, "When will England regain its independence from the United Kingdom and its Scottish political leadership?"
