Today in history: April 19

On this date in 1782, the Republic of the Seven United Netherlands becomes the first nation to recognize the independence of the United States.   This is historically important because it marked the United States' first entry onto the world stage, a process that would culminate two centuries later with atification of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods.
