As a result England pressured America to send supplies to them and then England would turn around and seize the French ships that were sailing to America with goods. This caused the young nation to suffer and the Americans were growing tired of the British interference. The British were also guilty of supplying resources, weapons, and a promise of free land to Indian tribes if they would retaliate against the Americans pre battle and later on during the war. Tecumseh, the leader of the Shawnee tribe, led numerous attacks on the American’s prior to the war and he worked closely with British forces. In 1811 Tecumseh decided to side with the British after William Henry Harrison and his men destroyed his home, Prophetstown, during the Battle of Tippecanoe.
John Adams was elected president in the year 1796 and served a term, before losing to Jefferson in the election of 1800. Adams influences were of the Federalist Party, which were “portrayed as the party of aristocrats (Democratic-Republican).” It was said that Adams wanted to keep the federal authority at a high level. Prior to being elected for president, Adams term did not seem promising because the war against France was near. In an effort to keep the peace with France, Adams sent three people from the commissioners to negotiate and keep the peace with France, yet France declined. Instead France was looking for and bribe from the United States.
Adams was criticized by both parties: his own, the Federalists and the Republicans. He was also called a warmonger and an indecisive leader during wartime; along with his uncontrollable temper, he would make rash decisions without consulting his cabinet members (Gevinson). Britain and America signed the Jay’s Treaty in 1794, and it caused France to be highly unsatisfied ("Thomas Jefferson 's Monticello"). As a result in 1796, the French began to snatch or capture American merchant ships by surprise (“Milestones: 1784–1800 - Office of the Historian").However, the Foreign Minister decided to not be cooperative and instead insulted the American envoys; this incident became known as the XYZ affairs, and it, “sparked a white-hot reaction within the United States” ( “John Adams: Foreign Affairs”). President Adams requested Congress to to create a navy because the protecting American commerce was the top priority (Magill 46).
When Adams became President, the war between the French and British was causing great difficulties for the United States on the high seas and intense partisanship among contending factions within the Nation. His administration focused on France, where the Directory, the ruling group, had refused to receive the American envoy and had suspended commercial relations. Adams sent three commissioners to France, but in the spring of 1798 word arrived that the French Foreign Minister Talleyrand and the Directory had refused to negotiate with them unless they would first pay a substantial bribe. Adams reported the insult to Congress, and the Senate printed the correspondence, in which the Frenchmen were referred to only as "X, Y, and Z." The Nation broke out into what Jefferson called "the X. Y.
However these embargoes hurt the US far more than they did Britain, angering American citizens and helping the cause of War Hawks (people who favored going to war) in Congress like Henry Clay. In 1812, after defeating DeWitt Clinton in the presidential election, James Madison asked Congress to declare war against Britain which they did. There were numerous battles fought in Canada, and the Northern United States, as well as naval battles, but neither side could gain a definitive advantage. By mid 1814, the War of 1812 was becoming more costly and had lasted longer than either side had anticipated. Britain, which had other issues to deal with, chief among them the Napoleonic Wars, began to look for a way to get out of the war.
Washington devised this treaty, which excluded the United States from the French Revolutionary Wars because America was still relatively young and unprepared for involvement in such international conflict. Reluctant to break his own terms and irritated by such deliberate acts of rebellion, the President, backed by Alexander Hamilton (pro-British), reacted with strong opposition towards Genêt’s demonstrations. Many other French supporters similar to Genêt had been tried for violating the neutrality, but were protected by pro-French juries. Washington banned the use of U.S. ports to the privateers, so Genêt threatened to turn to the people for their opinion. This had gone too far, so the President promptly implored that the French government recall their troublesome minister.
Marbury needed the notice of appointment; however, new secretary of state Republican John Madison refused to send it to him. As a result, Marbury asked the Supreme Court for help. The Chief of Justice, John Marshall, went back to available documents to find out what he was supposed to do. Finally, he presented that although Marbury has the right to the appointment, according to Constitution, no one has the right to force Madison to deliver Marbury’s commission. The Louisiana Purchase Being afraid of Napoleon who gained Louisiana and New Orleans for France, Jefferson sent “James Monroe and Robert R. Livingston to Paris to buy New Orleans from France” (Boyer 228).
In fact, without assistance, the Americans were no match for Britains; showing the hatred towards the British from the French and Americans, thus, making it easy for them to form an alliance. In 1778, representatives of both America and France signed the Treaty of Alliance. The two countries agreed to aid each other in the event of a British attack; from that present day to any upcoming battles dealing with Great Britian. Consquently, neither of the countries would make amends with England until independence of the United States was recognized. This allowed America to form an alliance with the French that was acknowledging America to gain their independence.
And that is why Napoleon ended up marring the daughter of the Austrian monarch; Francis. Russia was not convenient for the blockade of England . 5 years of blockade of England was unsustainable . In England established technological revolution and began to trade with the Americans. Napoleon lost the war with Russia because they were relying on quick agreement on peace, what happened.
