The Formation of a National Government Leaders crafted constitutional, legal basis for young nation CITIZEN GENET AND FOREIGN POLICY Although one of the first tasks of the new government was to strengthen the domestic  economy and make the nation financially secure, the United States could not ignore  foreign affairs. The cornerstones of Washington's foreign policy were to preserve peace,  to give the country time to recover from its wounds, and to permit the slow work of  national integration to continue. Events in Europe threatened these goals. Many  Americans watched the French Revolution with keen interest and sympathy.  In April  1793, news came that France had declared war on Great Britain and Spain, and that a  new French envoy, Edmond Charles Genet – Citizen Genet – was coming to the United  States.

    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.
