Mehmet Bayram APUSH January 19, 2007 1. The answer is E ; The Embargo Act was enacted in 1807 by Thomas Jefferson, not Alexander Hamilton. The Embargo Act was enacted because a British ship attacked the American ship, the Chesapeake . This was a violation of international law and Britain knew it. Jefferson passed the Embargo act to stop acts like these from continuing. It prohibited all exports from the United States. (Garraty 190). 2. The answer is D ; Thomas Jefferson reduced the size of the military. He tried to avoid the ongoing war in Europe and followed the neutrality policy both Washington and Adams followed. The amount of national debt increased due to decreased revenues from the Embargo Act. (Garraty 184) 3. The answer is B ; Thomas Jefferson and John Madison both maintained neutral throughout before 1812. George Washington urged neutrality in his farewell address to the nation and both presidents respected that. However, he could not avert war in after 1812 since Britain and France were fighting. (Garraty 198)

    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.
