In the back and forth two critical people get angry about the British actions, Ben Franklin and George Washington... especially Washington.
The Mason-Dixon Survey Begins -- If they don't get this right, the capital of Pennsylvania will be in Maryland. That is what is at stake.
Devil's Island... The 'Dry Guillotine' -- France just acquired Devil's Island as part of the peace treaty, but it won't become a punishment island until the French Revolution so relax.
