In 1783, the Treaty of Versailles was signed.

The American Revolution was done. And the new country’s growing pains began.America was not a nation. Not by any stretch of the imagination. The country was made up of thirteen states all clustered on the eastern seaboard. (The American frontier, at some points, was less than 250 miles west of the Atlantic Ocean.)With no war to bind them together, the states went their own separate ways.

Thirteen legislatures, one in each state, enacted laws and printed money and levied taxes based on their own self-interests. Seven states even maintained their own navies. There were no established national policies about things like freedom of speech or religion or even freedom itself.

There were, after all, some 700,000 slaves in the states with no freedom at all.It took until 1788 for the Constitution to be adopted and 1789 for George Washington to be inaugurated as the first President of the United States of America.As America set out to find itself, the new country was beset by tribulations that wore a far more personal face.
