对乔治华盛顿来说,在他对同僚道别的这一天,是一个非常情绪起伏非常大的日子。三个月之前,也就是1783年的93日,英国才签订了巴黎条约 (Treaty of Paris) ,正式承认美国独立。身为军队的总司令,华盛顿看到他的军队历经无数次的战役,看到自己的朋友和同伴死去,以及历经数月的饥饿与寒冷天气。当英国军舰在124日离开纽约港之后,华盛顿准备回到位于安那坡里斯 (Annapolis) 的马里兰州市政厅,那也是大陆会议召开的地方。

It was an emotional day for George Washington, when he said a final farewell to his officers. Three months earlier, on September 3, 1783, the British had recognized American independence with the signing of the Treaty of Paris. As commander in chief of the army, Washington had seen his troops through countless battles, the deaths of friends and comrades, and months of near starvation and freezing weather. After the British ships left New York Harbor on December 4, Washington set out for the Maryland State House in Annapolis, where the Continental Congress was meeting.
