COS Standard 6

Describe relations of the United States with Britain and France from 1781 to 1823, including the XYZ Affair, the War of 1812, and the Monroe Doctrine.

quasi war jay s treaty
Quasi-war: Jay’s Treaty
  • During Washington’s presidency, John Jay travels to Britain to negotiate a treaty with Britain.
    • Prevents war and protects American economy
    • Gives Britain the right to seize American cargo headed for French ports.
    • Britain agrees to give the US most-favored nation status.
      • Americans would not face discrimination when trading with Britain.
quasi war
Quasi-war
  • Even though America claimed to be neutral, America favored Britain and France felt the US violated the Treaty of 1778.
  • Angered by Jay’s Treaty, France stopped American ships and seized their goods en route to Britain.
  • President Adams sent people to negotiate with France.
    • Charles Pinckney
    • Elbridge Gerry
    • John Marshall
quasi war1
Quasi-war
  • Tensions increased when France demanded bribes from the American negotiators before talks began. The negotiators from France became known as XYZ.
  • When the news of the XYZ Affair gets out, Americans are outraged and demand for war.
  • Trade is suspended with France and navy is ordered to capture French ships: Quasi-war (undeclared war at sea)
  • Eventually, France and America come to an agreement and the quasi-war with France ends.
    • America gave up all claims against France for damages to American shipping.
    • France released the US from the Treaty of 1778.
causes of the war of 1812
Causes of the War of 1812
  • France and England’s relationship continues to deteriorate.
  • Tensions between the two countries benefit America: America plays both countries against each other.
  • Britain declared all ships going to Europe had to have a British license and would be searched. France declared that anyone who follows Britain’s declaration would have their goods confiscated.
  • Either way, Americans would lose their goods.
causes of the war of 18121
Causes of the War of 1812
  • The practice of impressment upset Americans as well.
  • British sailors were deserting the navy because of poor pay and ship conditions. They would board American ships.
  • Britain would stop American ships and seize people from these ships. (Impressment: legalized form of kidnapping that forced people into military)
  • Americans were forced into the British military.
  • Instead of war, Jefferson passes an embargo act (ban on trade). It hurts America more; Congress repeals the embargo.
causes of the war of 18123
Causes of the War of 1812
  • Madison is elected president.
  • He wants to avoid war too.
  • Passes Non-Intercourse Act: will not trade with either country, but Madison can lift the ban with whichever country lifts restrictions first.
    • It fails.
  • Madison tried Macon’s Bill Number Two: lift ban on trade, will trade with whoever; but will trade only with whichever country lifts restrictions first.
    • It works eventually. The British economy is badly hurt.
causes of the war of 18124
Causes of the War of 1812
  • Other causes of the War of 1812
    • Land disputes between America and Britain
      • Canada
      • Florida
    • Britain provoke and supply Native Americans to fight with Americans: Battle of Tippecanoe: Shawnee (Tecumseh) versus Americans (William Henry Harrison) fight over land in Indiana. Tecumseh and Shawnee lose.
