Ending the War, 1783

The various peace proposals, made by both sides, to end the Revolutionary War come under scrutiny in this final lesson of a three-part series on the war. Class members read primary source documents and compare them with military campaigns occurring at the same time. The final activity in the series has groups studying the terms of the 1783 Treaty of Paris and then individuals draw the postwar boundaries of the US on their interactive maps.
