Case: On October 19th, 1781, American troops led by George Washington won a decisive victory over British forces in Yorktown, Virginia, functionally ending the American Revolution. In 1783, following the Treaty of Paris, the remaining British troops left New York City, their last military position in the United States. The British retained control of Canada where some loyalists had fled after the Revolutionary War. This house believes that the United States should have invaded Canada after the signing of the Treaty of Paris, expelled the loyalists, and destroyed the remaining British forts, caveating that the US army would be able to retain the number of troops necessary for invasion.
