Book/Printed Material Treaty of Paris.
About this Item
- Treaty of Paris.
- This treaty, sent to Congress by the American negotiators John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, and John Jay, formally ended the Revolutionary War. It was one of the most advantageous treaties ever negotiated for the United States. Two crucial provisions were British recognition of U.S. independence and the delineation of boundaries that would allow for American expansion westward to the Mississippi River. Two duplicate originals of the treaty exist in the American Original file of the U.S. National Archives and Records Administration. They are most easily distinguished from each other by the orientation of their seals, horizontal on one and vertical on the other.
- Adams, John, 1735-1826 Author.
- Franklin, Benjamin, 1706-1790 Author.
- Jay, John, 1745-1829 Author.
