In any rebellion, it's only treason if you lose.

Who granted it? Britain accepted the de facto position that we had lost and negotiated a treaty accepting the facts.
The idea that we granted independence seems not to be accord with the facts. if we had continued at war it would have made coastal trading awkward for the Americans and continued to deny them international trading, but the blockade would have been ruinously expensive. We would also have continued a futile war against the French.

Do you ever read what anyone wrote?
That's like saying that America granted unification to the Vietnamese by losing a war to them and then signing a peace treaty. The loser doesn't grant anything. That's how wars work.
