The Treaty of Paris

Signed September 3, 1783, the Treaty of Paris formally ended the America Revolutionary War between England, and the United States and it’s allies. The document was signed at the Hotely d’York in Paris [now, 56 Rue Jacob], by Americans John Adams, Ben Franklin, and John Jay. Britain also signed separate documents and agreements with France, Spain, and the Dutch Republic.

This is Benjamin West's painting of the representatives from American and Britain who signed the Treaty of Paris. Jay, Adams, Franklin, Laurens, and Temple are pictured here. But the British delegates refused to be painted, so the painting was never finished.
