Good morning everyone, History Mom with Friday Fun Facts! On this date in 1259, the Treaty of Paris ended the Hundred Years War between England and France (though the English would keep Normandy for several more centuries). In 1783, Washington bid farewell to his officers at Fraunces Tavern downtown. So we see, even the longest war in history can have a peaceful end, and peaceful transition of power is doable. Let's all have a safe weekend!!
