Best Answer

The war was not officially over until the signing of the Treaty of Paris, which took place on September 3, 1783. April 19, 1783 saw publication of Thomas Paine's "American Crisis," which was influential in it's own right. However, Congress did not ratify the book, nor any other matter related to the official ending of the war in April.
