Celebrating the End of the War

The war is over!

What war? Why, the American Revolution, of course!

The Treaty of Paris, which was signed on September 3, 1783, formally ended the American Revolution between Great Britain and the American colonies. Among the points made in the Treaty of Paris was the acknowledgement of the 13 colonies to be free, sovereign and independent States.

The James Waldrop Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution is proud to sponsor the Second Annual Marquis de Lafayette Dinner to honor the signing of the Treaty of Paris and to celebrate the birth of Marquis de Lafayette on Tuesday, 1 September 2009, at 6:30 PM at Southern Oaks, 240 North Jeff Davis Drive in Fayetteville.

Dinner will be followed by a program by Phyllis King titled "LaFayette: Hero of the New Nation." The cost is $20 per person.

For more information or to make reservations for this important event in American history, contact Susan Sloan at jandssloan@mindspring.com or 770-461-2458.
