The War of 1812 When Thomas Jefferson took office as president in 1801, he hoped to focus on domestic concerns. He stated that America was one quarter of a globe away from destructive wars (Europe). He advised the US to seek the friendship of all nations but to enter into “entangling alliances with none.” (The president’s goal to keep the US separated from other nations and their problems would prove not to be realistic.) Tensions between Britain and the United States continue * After the Treaty of Paris ended the AR, relations remained tense between Britain and its former colonies. Many in Britain thought the colonies might one day rejoin the British Empire. * Both sides did not live up to all the terms of the Treaty of Paris America - Did not restore property taken from Loyalists. Britain- Did not give up their forts in the area west of the Appalachian Mts. Continued trade relations with the Native Americans (As more Americans settled west of the Appalachian Mts. they came to resent and fear this trade.) War between Britain and France affects the United States * Relations between Britain and France made matters worse. In 1789, France had its own revolution. As a result of the French Revolution, between 1793 - 1814, Britain and France were almost constantly at war. (Neither wanted America to supply food or other supplies to its enemy).
