At the end of the Revolutionary War, England signed the Treaty of Paris on September 3. Along with this event, many other historical events took place on this day, and they are recapped by Russ Mitchell in this video clip from This Day In History. Richard the Lionhearted was crowned the King of England in Westminster Abbey. The Viking 2 landed on the surface of Mars and sent back some of the first close-ups of the planet, and tennis-pro Andre Agassi announced his retirement after losing in the third round of the US Open.
