John Adams was a great president in the years 1797-1800, with many accomplishments. Some of the many challenges he went through during his presidency included the Jay Treaty, originally signed during Washington's term, the XYZ Affair, in 1797 to 1798, and the Quasi War with France.
Most gentlemen would heap mountains of praise upon the late John Adams. Such gentlemen would look at Adams’s life and feel awestruck at how a single man was not only able to contribute greatly towards this country’s founding but also able to serve as both vice president and president of the Unites States. Ignorant men would say that an accomplished man of Adams’s stature would be more than deserving of such recognition. For, according to them, our country flourished under Adams’s influence. However, I, James Madison, do not stand amongst the foolish; I believe that the leadership of this nation under John Adams could only be described as atrocious.
George Washington’s foreign policies helped boost the American economy. This is shown through Jay’s Treaty and Pinckney 's Treaty. During the time of Washington 's reign the French Revolution erupted between England and France. England began seizing American ships that were carrying goods to France. To solve this disturbance Washington sent John Jay to England to work out a treaty. Through Jay’s Treaty England gave America the “most favored nation” status, which meant that American merchants got a break on taxes on imported goods; “.. they shall pay no other higher duties or charges on the importation or exportation of the cargoes of the said vessels…(Phillips 146)” By having reduced trading costs Americans were able gain benefit because
51. Events surrounding the XYZ Affair: In the wake of the French Revolution, relations between the new French Republic and the United States become ever more strained. Three French agents, publicly referred to as X, Y, and Z demanded major concessions from the United States as a condition for continuing bilateral diplomatic relations.
Historically, it is believed that the causes of large scale events and wars are often rooted in the outcomes of previous conflicts. The American Revolution, one of the largest most historically significant events of all time, was caused by a multitude of events. Specifically, many of the causes were in fact the results of past conflicts and ongoing tension, such as the French and Indian War and British taxation acts. Contrary to popular belief, the impact of American Revolution was not solely confined to the colonies and the British crown. Aside from leading to American independence, the American Revolution was a part of a larger global conflict, involving issues between Great Britain, France, and other foreign nations. Overall, the outcome
John Adams presidency was controversial. Following George Washington’s presidency, John Adams became president but not by many votes. John Adams presidency was an ineffective President of the United States. I believe he was ineffective due to the XYZ Affair, the Alien and Sedition ACts, his political parties, and him isolating his cabinet and him as vice president.
Americans were still often caught in the middle as British and French naval forces seized American ships and crews. On June 1812 President James Madison asked for a declaration of war from Congress, and also cited four reasons for America’s first war. Even though the war was a military disaster for the United States, they still lost no territory to the British and America’s army and navy gained respect because they had to stand up to Europe’s most powerful nation. The War of 1812 also served to stimulate America’s economic growth, and was the end of all U.S. military hostility with Great
Seeking religious freedom, more land and more raw materials, the Pilgrims from England set on a voyage to a new world. Arriving to a land already inhabited by Native Americans, the pilgrims were unwelcomed. Overcoming the differences and finding peace between each group, the Natives helped the Englanders prosper. The inference people can assume is from the numerous times Native Americans are mentioned in early American history such as “Of Plymouth Plantation” and “The Constitution of the Iroquois Nations” that the foundation of America began with the help of Natives.
George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison and James Monroe were the first five presidents of the United States and the people who led America to success during a time of great conflict. These presidents helped shape America into what it is today. Without their problems during their presidencies and then solving them, no one knows where America would be. For example, why did President Madison go to war, in 1812, unlike all of the previous and future presidents.
After a detailed analysis of the documents, it is very clear that if I was a soldier in the continental army I would stay in the army for the following important reasons: first, the urgent need of healthy and strong soldiers to fight against the British (Document A and Document C), second, the visit of the Congressional committee and hope for support (Document B and External Source 1) and finally, the last reason I would stay in the army because of Paine’s great words and I wouldn’t want to be a summer soldier (Document D and External Source 2).
The diplomats requested for money before they would negotiate. The commissioners were enraged and returned home where they told President Adams of the encounter. When submitting the report to Congress, Adams tried to prevent a war from breaking out by the Federalists by not listing the diplomats names and their request for money. The report was found to be edited and missing information and Adams was forced to release the entire copy, creating war fever throughout the country. Seats in Congress were taken over by Federalists and they used their new power to pass the Alien and Sedition
