Section 2 Foreign Affairs Trouble the Nation France and Great Britain went to war. Some Americans supported the French/some supported the British. President Washington and others wanted to remain neutral Believed this was the safest plan for the U.S. in the long run. The United States issued the Neutrality Proclamation it would not take sides with any European countries that were at war. Democratic-Republican view on Neutrality Proclamation France had been America’s ally in the Revolution against the British. A 1778 treaty still bound the two nations together. In addition, many saw France’s revolution as proof that the American cause had been just. Federalist view on Neutrality Proclamation Britain IS the United States’ most important trading partner, and British trade IS TOO important to risk war Issues with Spain The Spanish disputed the U.S. and Florida border. Spain closed the New Orleans port to U.S. trade in 1784 This hurt the American economy. Solution to Issues with Spain Pinckney’s Treaty was signed in 1795. - Spain gives up claims to western U.S. - Florida-U.S. boundary set at 31st parallel - Mississippi River open to U.S. traffic Issues with Native Americans Native Americans do not accept Treaty of Paris; demand direct talks In 1790 Miami tribe chief, Little Turtle, defeats U.S. army Washington appointed General Anthony Wayne to lead federal troops against the Native Americans.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
