Summary

In Paris during the spring, summer, and autumn of 1782, three remarkable Americans represented the United States in negotiations that brought an end to the American Revolutionary War. Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, and John Jay worked to bring about British recognition of American independence and a cessation to hostilities. At times at loggerheads with the British and at times at loggerheads with each other, these three great patriots nevertheless won a tremendous diplomatic victory for their country in securing the peace. The Treaty of Paris: The Precursor to a New Nation offers an engaging, curriculum-based look at the people and events behind this extraordinary achievement. Excerpts from primary documents, lively biographical details, and first-person narratives highlight the Treaty’s impact on American history.
