1789 to 1815 – French Revolution and European wars put a lot of pressure on U.S. to take a side!

Foreign Policy of Washington and Adams


Relations with England = getting worse

England wouldn't leave NW Territories (Treaty of Paris)

England also grabbed Americans off American ships to serve in navy against France! (impressment)

Foreign Policy of Washington and Adams


America passed anti-British navigation laws = harder to trade

It was clear this would greatly damage the U.S. economy!

Could we fight the British?? NO!!

Foreign Policy of Washington and Adams


We had to deal.

Jay’s Treaty

John Jay, a U.S. diplomat, was sent to England to work this out.

Foreign Policy of Washington and Adams


Jay’s Treaty Terms:

England leaves NW Territories (again)

England pays some damages for U.S. ships sunk (neutral)

Foreign Policy of Washington and Adams


U.S. gives most favorite nation status to England (trade advantage)

U.S. will not seek damages for “impressment”

Foreign Policy of Washington and Adams


VERY unpopular!

People burned John Jay in “effigy”

Ratified, by Congress with Washington’s support.

Foreign Policy of Washington and Adams


Washington:

Proclamation of Neutrality in 1793 and Farewell Address in 1796

Set the tone for American foreign policy until WW I

STAY OUT OF EUROPE!!!

Foreign Policy of Washington and Adams


"It is our true policy to steer clear of permanent alliances with any portion of the foreign world..."
