The Treaty of Paris 1783 ended the American War for Independence, but it did not bring peace to North America. After 1783, warfare and violence continued between Americans and Native Americans.
So how did the early United States attempt to create peace for its new nation?
In this episode of Ben Franklin’s World: A Podcast About Early American History, Michael Oberg, Distinguished Professor of History at the State University of New York-Geneseo, joins us to investigate how the United States worked with the Haudenosaunee or Iroquois people to create peace through the Treaty of Canandaigua in 1794.
