help we're poor:(
Impressment was when american sailors were captured by british ships and forced to be enlisted into Great Britain's army. The ships were raided and used for the army as well.
America was not very happy that Britain was taking their supplies and sailors so they brought it to the congress. They made an official act called the Embargo Acts which made foreign trades illegal. Now, Britain can't take America's men or goods.
After the Embargo acts, Britain was no longer able to take American soldiers. This was good for America, but after the Acts America was no longer able to get revenue from trade so the country became very poor.
