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)
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!!
We had to deal.
John Jay, a U.S. diplomat, was sent to England to work this out.
Jay’s Treaty Terms:
England leaves NW Territories (again)
England pays some damages for U.S. ships sunk (neutral)
U.S. gives most favorite nation status to England (trade advantage)
U.S. will not seek damages for “impressment”
People burned John Jay in “effigy”
Ratified, by Congress with Washington’s support.
Proclamation of Neutrality in 1793 and Farewell Address in 1796
Set the tone for American foreign policy until WW I
STAY OUT OF EUROPE!!!
"It is our true policy to steer clear of permanent alliances with any portion of the foreign world..."
