After the American victory over the British at Lake Champlain, it lead to the conclusions to peace negotiations of the treaty of Ghent.
What day was it signed on?
The treaty was signed on December 24th 1814 by both the Americans and the British leading to the “official” end to the 32 month war
This treaty was created to make peace between the Americans and the British as the British army was tired of almost 10 years of constant warfare
Why is this significant to American history? It seems kind of irrelevant.
The Treaty of Ghent ended the War of 1812 between the United States and Great Britain. Peace negotiations began in Ghent, Belgium, starting in August of 1814. After four months of talks, the treaty was signed on December 24, 1814. The Senate unanimously ratified the Treaty of Ghent on February 16, 1815.
