See the source image


The American Revolution officially came to an end when
representatives of the United States, Great Britain, Spain
and France sign the
Treaty of Paris on September 3, 1783.

The signing signified America’s status as a free nation, as
Britain formally recognized the independence of its 13
former American colonies, and the boundaries of the new
republic were agreed upon:
Florida north to the Great
Lakes and the Atlantic coast west to the Mississippi
River.

DETENTE ENDED ON THIS DAY IN 1980

1979.


On January 2, 1980, in a strong reaction to the December 1979 Soviet
invasion of Afghanistan, President
Jimmy Carter asks the Senate to
postpone action on the SALT II nuclear weapons treaty and recalls
the U.S. ambassador to Moscow. These actions sent a message that
the age of détente and the friendlier diplomatic and economic relations
that were established between the United States and
Soviet Union
during President
Richard Nixon’s administration (1969-74) had ended.

Carter feared that the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, in which an
estimated 30,000 combat troops entered that nation and established
a puppet government, would threaten the stability of neighboring 
strategic countries such as Iran and Pakistan and could lead to the
USSR gaining control over much of the world’s oil supplies. The
Soviet actions were labeled “a serious threat to peace” by the
White House.

On September 4, 1951, President Harry S. Truman’s opening speech before a conference in San Francisco was broadcast across the nation, marking the
first time a TV program was broadcast from coast to coast. The speech
focused on Truman’s acceptance of a treaty that officially ended America’s
post-
World War II occupation of Japan.

According to the CBS television network, the broadcast, via then-state-of-the-
art microwave technology, was picked up by 87 stations in 47 cities.

On "Bloody Sunday," March 7, 1965, some 600 civil rights marchers headed east out of Selma on U.S. Route 80. They got only as far as
the Edmund Pettus Bridge six blocks away, where state and local 
lawmen with batons and tear gas drove them back into Selma.
