Here they agreed that they would not give up before a French constitution had been established. They managed to abolish most of Ancien Régime as well as rewrite the rights of the system so that they were distributed more equally between the general, the nobles and the priests - the revolution would make an incredibly bad job of sticking to these rights, but the same could argue for many other seemingly successful revolutions. Back in Versailles, the people were still starving and a rumor had spread that Queen Marie Antoinette, saved grain in his
At the outset, they hoped that, by pointing out that the Orders in Council had been revoked, the U.S. would suspend hostilities. Instead, President Madison demanded an end to impressment, well aware that Britain would not make such a concession in wartime. And so Britain went to war, with no troops to spare to reinforce Canada; it would be defended by a handful of British regulars, Native Americans and Canadian militia. The British imposed the same devastating economic blockade that had crippled France, carefully targeting states like Virginia that had voted for war. By autumn 1814 the American economy had collapsed.
The wars were named the Napoleonic Wars, and involved Britain, France, Austria, Prussia, and Russia, with France fighting against Britain and everybody else fighting against France.

Across the seas indirect support was received as Spain, France, and the Netherlands began general warfare with Britain, which indirectly helped influence the Revolutionary war.

Then John Adams agreed to the convention of 1800, which ended the alliance between the U.S. and France. After Adams, Jefferson created the Embargo of 1807 because France and Britain was violating the U.S.’s trading rights, seizing cargoes, and kidnapping sailors. The embargo failed to make Britain respect America’s trading rights, so when James Madison can into presidency in 1809 he had the same problem.
The French Revolution brought fighting between Austria and France, until French armies drove back the Austrian invaders, and France was self-declared a republic. Violence in France started the Reign of Terror, during which Hamilton’s federalists spoke of the evil of the revolution, blaming Democratic-Republicans for supporting the outbreak of violence in France. Jefferson and his people disagreed and felt that the price of a few thousand soldiers was a cheap one to pay for freedom. This comes to prove how the French Revolution brought the division between the Federalists and the Democratic-Republicans even further. Another event in this time that would bring a negative impact of american politics would be the War of 1812 which resulted from the Embargo Act.
