Commemorative issue Treat of Paris - American Bicentennial
John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, John Jay, David Hartley
The Treaty of Paris officially ended the American Revolution and was signed by John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, and John Jay. The treaty also established the boundaries of the nation at the Great Lakes, the Mississippi River, and the northern border of Florida. The American victory at Yorktown was not a surrender of all British troops in the colonies, but was enough of a triumph to secure what was desired at the Paris peace table.
