thegeneral #OTD September 3, 1783: The Treaty of Paris formally ended the #American Revolutionary War between #GreatBritain and the #UnitedStates and recognized the independence of Britain's thirteen North American colonies stretching from what is now Maine to Georgia. Although fighting related to the war had largely ended two years earlier with Great Britains stunning loss at Yorktown, Virginia, the peace process was delayed by Britains failure to accept its defeat. The Treaty of Paris was finally signed by representatives of Great Britain and the North American Congress of the Confederation on September 3, 1783, and Americans were at last able to celebrate their historic victory.

The Treaty of Paris not only recognized that the thirteen colonies were free, sovereign, and independent, it also established the boundaries between the United States and Britains remaining North American colony in what is now Canada, granted important fishing rights to U.S. fisherman, provided for the mutual payment of debts, prohibited the confiscation of Loyalists property, repatriated all prisoners of war, and granted access to the Mississippi River to both the United States and Great Britain.

The Treaty of Paris was ratified by the Confederation #Congress on January 14, 1784 and the British King on April 9, 1784. Separate treaties formally ended hostilities related to the American Revolution between Great Britain and the countries of France, Spain, and the Dutch Republic. #GeorgeWashington #TheGeneral #AmericanHistory #AmericanRevolution #RevolutionaryWar #Treaty #TreatyOfParis #History from #NoLo
