The American Revolution was a daughter of the French Revolution. Without the American Revolution, there would never have been a French Revolution. They are both events of a Masonic agenda timeline. The Treaty of Paris, signed on September 3, 1783, ended the Revolutionary War but not the financial problems of the newly established nation. America's war debt to France was never properly repaid, which was part of the cascade of events leading to the French Revolution. If you think the founding fathers of the US can be viewed in a positive light, then you must also hold the same view of the thinkers and actors who manifested the French Revolution in France.
