The French Revolution
In 1790, Hamilton showed his plan to congress to improve the nation's finances. There were 3 steps to this. Step number one is paying off all war debts. Step two is raising government revenues. Lastly, step three is creating a national bank.
After the Battle of Fallen Timbers, Washington put an army out on the field. Then there was some conflict and it caused the government to put tax on whiskey. For them, whiskey and the grain it was made from was important products.
In the year 1789, a financial crisis led the French people to rebel against their government. This revolution demanded liberty and equality. This revolution put the U.S. in an awkward position because France was America's ally in the Revolutionary war against Britain. After the war, Washington declared that the U.S. would remain neutral, meaning that the U.S. would not side with anyone.
