When did Americans achieve peace with great Britain?
America, in a manner of speaking, had two peace treaties with the British Empire. The first one came at the end of the American Revolutionary War. The Treaty of Paris was signed recognizing the Americans as an independent nation. The treaty was signed in Paris in 1783. By the terms of the treaty, Britain formally recognized American independence and cede to the Americans all British claims to land east of the Mississippi River. In 1812, the Americans were the United States. The War of 1812 against the British ended by the Treaty of Ghent, under the Administration of US President James Monroe in 1814.
What does Paine mean when he says you challenge the warmest advocate for peace to show a single advantage that the colonies can gain by being connected with great Britain?
