XYZ Affair-Late 1700s. X, Y, and Z were French agents. Adams was elected president. He was pro-British. French seized American ships. X, Y, and Z went to Talleyrand (French) to stop seizures. Talleyrand tried to bribe American diplomats. Instead, America cut off trade with France because of insulting America’s honor. This started an undeclared maritime war. Louisiana Purchase-1803. Jefferson as president. Napoleon feared an American takeover of Louisiana so he sold it to them for $15million. Forced Jefferson to reconsider his strict interpretation of the Constitution-accepted it loosly. Sent Louis and Clark to explore the people, animals, and features of the territory. Purchase very controversial esp. with Hamilton. Caused increased party conflict. George Washington-1788 elected 1 st president of US. Had to “create” a presidency. Appoints a cabinet-Hamilton, Jefferson, Knox, and Randolph. Acts as law maker. Sets precedents for the presidency (inaugural address).

    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.
