The Treaty of Versailles between Spain and Great Britain, one of the treaties ending the world war of which the American Revolution was a part.

The transfer of the Floridas (including the southern portions of Alabama and Mississippi) was of the utmost importance to the future geo-political strategy and expansion of the United States. By this treaty it was also agreed that navigation of the Hondo and Belize Rivers in the Honduras would be open to both Spain and Great Britain; the map shows the area concerned. Palau 339315.
