    Americans do not have British accents since we are not British wink

    To be truthful, which British accent do you mean?  There are multiple British accents just like there are multiple American accents.

    As people from various nations/cultures began to settle throughout the U.S. during and after the American Revolution, Americans began to develop their own distinct accents. When these different nationalities began to mix and settle in particular regions, new accents developed for different sections of the country.
