Ratification Day 2024: Date, History, Importance and facts about American Revolution

The American Revolution, also known as the American War of Independence, lasted for over eight years from April 19, 1775, until September 3, 1783. The Treaty of Paris, which established the United States as a "free, sovereign, and independent" nation, was signed on September 3, 1783, by delegates of the United States and Britain. On Ratification Day, January 14, 1784, the United States Congress approved the Treaty of Paris, marking the end of the American War.

Ratification Day 2024: The United States observes Acceptance Day on January 14 to honor the Confederation Congress’s acceptance of the Treaty of Paris, which put an end to the Revolutionary War and made America an independent nation. The United States Congress formally declared the war to be finished on this day, but there was still a long way to go before the end of hostilities in the Revolutionary War and the treaty’s confirmation in Paris following Ratification Day.

The Ratification Day History

Representatives from thirteen British American colonies began the American Revolutionary War, often known as the American War of Independence or the Revolutionary War. It lasted for more than eight years, from April 19, 1775, until September 3, 1783.

On April 11, 1783, Congress declared a “cessation of arms” against Great Britain. Four days later, the statement was confirmed. On September 3, 1783, representatives of the United States and Britain signed the Treaty of Paris, which recognized the United States as a “free, sovereign, and independent” nation.

On December 13, 1783, Congress convened at the Maryland State House in Annapolis to approve the Treaty of Paris. The severe winter of 1783–1784—characterized by bitter cold, ice storms, and snowstorms—meant that only seven of the thirteen states could muster the requisite number of representatives until mid-January. They could not cast ballots since just one legate each from South Carolina and New Hampshire had made it to the meeting. They were also unable to cast a ballot since no delegates from Connecticut, New Jersey, Georgia, or New York were present.

By January 13, two Connecticut delegates had come, bringing the total number of states eligible to vote up to eight and giving Connecticut a chance to vote on the treaty. There was also a delegate from New Jersey. When South Carolina’s second delegate, Richard Beresford, showed up the following day, the vote could be taken. On January 14, 1784, or “Ratification Day,” the United States Congress approved the Treaty of Paris.

To commemorate the conclusion of the American War of Independence, we observe this holiday. It’s a chance to thank everyone who helped to forge the foundation of our independent country.
