    Can you clarify the question and explain why the Treaty of Paris doesn't answer the question? – Mark C. Wallace Jun 27 '17 at 23:44

In 1783.

Specifically, with the signing of the Treaty of Paris on 3 September 1783.

Interestingly, as the Wikipedia article notes, Article 1 of the treaty, in which King George III acknowledged the United States' existence as "free sovereign and independent states", is the only part of the treaty that remains in force.

  • Does GB really still consider the US to consist of 50 (or 13) separate "free sovereign and independent states"? – Jonathan Cast Oct 25 '17 at 19:41
