Assignment: read 75+ pages about the aftermath of the Battle of Yorktown (1781) and the negotiations for the Peace of Paris (1783) and then write an essay on each of these topics.
Opening of an actual answer: The assasination of Franz Ferdinand in 1914 set of a chain of reactions which erupted in great violence, but eventually resolved in the Treaty of Paris.
The essay then goes on to discuss World War I. The other essay does a fine job with the Battle of Yorktown. I haven't a clue what I'm going to say in my comments.
