"Huzzah!" expresses approval or delight . The exclamation is similar to "Hooray!" European sailors first used the phrase in this context during the late 16th century. During the 18th century, "Huzzah!" was more closely associated with the British Royal Navy. British Royal Navy "press gangs" forced American colonial seamen into service, one of the many grievances of American colonists leading up to the fight for independence from Britain during the Revolutionary War and a contributing factor to the War of 1812 when the United States would solidify independence from Britain once again.
