1794: The United States and the Kingdom of Great Britain sign Jay's Treaty, which attempts to resolve some of the lingering problems left over from the American Revolutionary War. Among other things, the treaty included the withdrawal of British forces from pre-Revolutionary forts in the Northwest Territory of the United States, sent disputes over wartime debts and the American-Canadian boundary to arbitration, and gave America limited rights to trade with British colonies in India and the Caribbean.
