Three provisions: United States as an independent nation, gave up all land between Atlantic Ocean and Mississippi River, United States agreed to return all rights and property taken from Loyalists during war.
The American Revolution affected other parts of the world in two ways. First it caused the French Revolution in 1789 and it inspired revolts in South America against British rule.

The Media's Role
Our section is the end of the war. The war starts to move around the colonies. Later the Peace Treaty was signed for the war to be over for good. Before the Peace Treaty of Paris was signed, the British and Americans were ready for battle, they were building up their soldiers for upcoming battles.
The medias role in the end of the war was that it helped spread the word that the British had lost the battle of Yorktown and that the British kingdom were giving up any remaining support for the war.
