Treaty of Paris

Signing of the Treaty of Paris

Signing of the Treaty of Paris

The Treaty of Paris is part 15, and the last part, of my “Revisiting the American Revolution History.” Have a great Fourth of July celebration, and remember what others have sacrificed for this privilege. The Treaty of Paris officially ended the revolution, and recognized the United States of America as an independent nation.

The Treaty of Paris was signed on September 3, 1782 and was ratified on April 17, 1783. Under the terms of the treaty, Britain recognized the independent nation of the United States of America. Britain agreed to remove all of its troops from America. The treaty also set new borders for the United States including all land from the Great Lakes on the north, to Florida on the south, and from the Atlantic Ocean to the Mississippi River.
