33) XYZ Affair- (1798 John Adams) French would seize 300 US ships because they were upset  about America’s jay treaty with England. U.S. upset and voided treaties as a result. Adams sent  delegates to France, and the French demanded bribes to negotiate. This leads to the undeclared  quasi war with France that America had. (Also a reason Jefferson chooses the Embargo of 1807  when he came into office.) “Quasi War” with France, de facto military allies with England for  small time.  34) Treaty of Paris, 1783- A treaty signed in 1783, in Paris (no shit) to end the War/Revolution between America and Great Britain.

America became a country . Completely took all power away from Native Americans into the hands of whites, in North America. (By taking away support from Canadians and British.)
