Welcome to America

Finally after years of struggle, General Cornwallis surrendered to the Colonists at Yorktown.

The Colonists had won their war of independence. People were dancing in the streets [16]

The war was officially over with the Treaty of Paris [17]. This recognized America's independence, set America's boundaries and the colonists and British were at peace.

Now the United States was free from those lame taxes, it was time to party like it was 1699, but, now its time to figure out what to do with America.

[16] But not the Keith Richards/David Bowie version
