Jumble Spoiler – 07/30/21

OTD in History… September 3, 1783, the Treaty of Paris ends American  Revolutionary War | by Bonnie K. Goodman | Medium

Clue/Question:  The 1784 Treaty of Paris, signed by the U.S. and Great Britain, was a – – –

Answer:  MASTERPEACE

(Surrre it was.  Pretty much like all treaties, pacts, and agreements, it wasn’t really worth the paper it was written on.  As far as actual peace goes that is.  Otherwise we wouldn’t have had the War of 1812.  Of course our history books try to paint us in the more positive light, but the underlying reason for going into that war – like all U.S. wars of the 19th Century – had more to do with Expansionism, than anything else.  And, guess who suffered as a result of that?  That’s right.  The indigenous peoples on our frontier.  We are really good at putting lipstick on the pig!

All of the clue words already reside on the ralis95 clue word database.  Two of the jumbles appear to be new, but we’ve definitely seen both “xtree” and “supea” before.  I had a bit of trouble unscrambling “mrenso”.  I had to skip it, and then come back to it.  I guess I’m not much for sermons!  The answer letter layout was another impressively long jumble.  I thought it was beautifully cryptic.  I was able to see MASTER pretty quickly . . . and then I PEACEd the rest together.

Great period peace cartoon.  Although, it was signed in 1783, not 1784.  The only easily identifiable person is Benjamin Franklin.  The guy to Ben’s immediate right looks like a little Fred Flintstone in a powdered wig!  I’m guessing that the dopey looking guy to Ben’s left is some British signatory, who’d never heard of John Hancock’s famous signature.  Another great Jumble!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Well, The Treaty of Paris was ratified by the Congress of the United States on January 14, 1784. The Treaty formally ended the Revolutionary War and established the United States as a free and independent nation. Interesting…have no recall of history in school. Good Jumble…had trouble with SERMON! LL

    Thanks for providing the boys with an out, LindaLee! LOL! I’m sure they appreciate it.

    My point was that 28 – or 29 – years later we were back at war with the same dern people! Treaties are not all that enforceable, and very often are one-sided and very unfair. Fast forward to the 20th Century, and you have the Treaty of Versailles, signed in 1919, ending THE World War. 20 years later we’re right back at it with World War II.

    I’m not saying there was no justification for the War of 1812, just that the history books always paint a much rosier picture, and tend to ignore the duplicity.

    Y’all raising a sore subject to certain people, Unc.

    Notice all the “sacred” treaties the United States and Canada signed with the natives of North America.

    Yet, we kept killing them and chasing them away from lands agreed upon by those same long-forgotten treaties.

    Has God been punishing us ever since ?

    Yep! Like I said, they weren’t worth the paper they were written on, lwc! Perhaps this is the red man’s revenge??? Serves us right. — YUR
