Joshua Hinkley APUSH Burger 10/17/19 Analyze America’s foreign policy through Washington’s presidency that dealt with the statement below (1-2 paragraphs) “As western settlers sought free navigation of the Mississippi River, the United States forged diplomatic initiatives to manage the conflict with Spain and to deal with the continued British presence on the American continent” The foreign policy that was implemented during Washington's presidency is known as Neutrality or Non-involvement keeping out of all foreign policies and wars that followed afterward. This is due to the conflict between France and Great Britain in the French Revolution. With both countries fighting each other they looked for aid in the America’s but the US was conflicted with whom to help due to their past encounterments with each country. French being that they were on the US’s side during the Revolutionary War, although the Americans had strong cultural ties with the British. Thus, George Washington followed the policy of Neutrality in order to stay out of it. The Treaty of San Lorenzo also known as Pinckney's Treaty in 1795 stopped the conflict between the Mississippi trading systems between the US and Spain. US wanted free trade and navigation down the Mississippi that the Spaniards still had control of along with trade in New Orleans ports. The result in thee treaty was that the split between land was now the 31st parallel from Florida- to US and free navigation of the Mississippi. This supported the Americans in the idea for the westward expansion. It also ruined the buffer that Spain had initially wanted between them and the 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.
