Peace Agreement in Puerto Rico

August 12, 1898

Peace protocols were signed in Washington, D.C. on August 12, 1898. Although this armistice ended the active conflict, the war could not be considered over until a treaty was signed. Both countries appointed a group of prominent leaders and politicians as commissioners to meet in Paris in October 1898. The Treaty was signed on December 10, 1898.
