3 Agreements In The Treaty Of Paris That Ended The American Revolution
Britain has breached its contractual obligation to give up control of the forts on U.S. territory "at comfortable speed." British troops remained stationed in six forts in the Great Lakes region, plus two at the northern end of Lake Champlain. In 1794, during the War of Northwestern India, the British built a new fort in present-day Ohio. They found justification for these actions in the volatile and extremely tense situation in the post-war region, by the inability of the United States government to meet the commitments made to compensate loyalists for their losses and the British need for time to liquidate various assets in the region.  All posts were peacefully abandoned by the Treaty of Jay of 1794. On 27 March 1918, Russia signed a treaty with the central powers (Germany, Austria-Hungary, Ottoman Empire, Bulgaria) in the town of Brest-Litovsk, in present-day Belarus near the Polish border, ending its participation in the First World War (1914-18).

John Jay quickly told the British that he was ready to negotiate directly with them and cut off France and Spain. The British Prime Minister, Lord Shelburne, agreed.
He was responsible for the British negotiations (some of which took place in his studies at Lansdowne House, now a bar at the Lansdowne Club) and now saw a chance to separate the United States from France and make the new country a valuable economic partner.  Western conditions were that the United States would reach the entire region east of the Mississippi River, northern Florida and southern Canada. The northern border would be almost the same as it is today.  The United States would retain fishing rights off the Coast of Canada and would agree to allow British traders and loyalists to recover their property. It was a very favourable treaty for the United States, from a British point of view. Prime Minister Shelburne predicted a very profitable two-way trade between Britain and the fast-growing United States, as actually happened.  The victory of the United States in the Battle of Yorktown in 1781 made peace talks in which British negotiators were prepared to consider U.S. independence as possible. British governments in the 18th century tended to be unstable and depended on both a majority in the House of Commons and the king`s favour. When the Yorktown news reached London, the parliamentary opposition succeeded in overthrowing Frederick North`s disputed government, Lord North. Peace negotiations began in April 1782 in Paris and continued until the summer.
The United States represented Benjamin Franklin, John Jay, Henry Laurens and John Adams. David Hartley and Richard Oswald represented Great Britain. The contract was signed on November 30, 1782 by Adams, Franklin, Jay and Hartley at the Hotel d`York (now 56 Jacob Street) in Paris.  The treaty, signed by Franklin, Adams and Jay at the York Hotel in Paris, was finalized on September 3, 1783 and ratified by the Continental Congress on January 14, 1784. The British, for example, refused to abandon many of their fortresses in the former northwest territory, while the Americans continued to confiscate property from citizens who remained loyal to the British crown during the war. In the Treaty of Paris (1763), the French ceded Canada to the British and ceded their rights to almost every country in North America. The war weighed on relations between the British, who thought the settlers had not contributed enough, and the settlers who thought that British military power was low.
