Benjamin Franklin had a key role in the negotiations.<br />     Delegates took more than two years to come to a peace agreement. In the Treaty of Paris of 1783, Great Britain recognized the independence of the United States. The treaty also set America’s borders. A separate treaty between Britain and Spain returned Florida to the Spanish. British leaders also accepted American rights to settle and trade west of the original thirteen colonies. <br />     At the war’s end, Patriot soldiers returned to their homes and families. The courage of soldiers and civilians had made America’s victory possible. As they returned home, George Washington thanked his troops for their devotion. “I…wish that your latter days be as prosperous as your former ones have been glorious.”<br />
