Peace Finally Emerges: The Treaty of Paris

Brad Lieb

The Treaty of Paris ended the French and Indian War in 1763 and began a new era of prosperity for the Chickasaws, who brokered peace internally with the Choctaws years earlier. With the French losing most of their land in North America in the treaty, the Chickasaws were able to spread out again, some even later returning to the homes of their ancestors.
