The Treaty of Paris of 1783, negotiated between the United States and Great Britain, ended the American Revolutionary War and recognized American independence. What lie ahead for the Americans was the daunting task of unifying 13 very independent minded colonies and creating a system of government that was acceptable to most of the colonies.
The country was also financially broke with no means to raise funds to run a government. Three significant documents were put in place that had a far-reaching impact on the United States; The Treaty of Paris of 1783, The Land Ordinance of 1785 and The Northwest Ordinance of 1787.
The American negotiators did an excellent job. Among the team’s notable achievements were: British recognition of American independence (a point pressed most strongly by Jay), the securing (by Adams and Jay) of American fishermen’s right of access to the Grand Banks off the coast of Newfoundland and other traditional fisheries in Canadian waters and Great Britain’s ceding to the United States all territory between the Allegheny Mountains on the east and the Mississippi River on the west, thereby doubling the size of the new nation.
The young country addressed the question of expansion with some difficulty, eventually defining a way to divide the land that was used in the expansion the years ahead all the way to the Pacific Ocean in.
