September 2008 – January 5, 2009

The year 2008 marks the 225th anniversary of Treaty of Paris that ended the American Revolution. However, its legacy has been much greater than merely ending the war: it reshaped North America, creating new political relationships, voicing new American identities, and leading to the forging of new lives throughout North America. This international exhibition brings together for the first time Library and Archives of Canada with the National Archives and Records Administration.

The eight-month exhibit will feature many valuable archival treasures from the vaults of both institutions, including the rarely-seen American copy of the 1783 Treaty of Paris. After premiering at the Library and Archives Canada in Ottawa on May 5, 2008, the exhibit will travel to the National Archives’ Lawrence F. O’Brien Gallery in Washington to open on the treaty’s anniversary date of September 3rd.
