You Americans owe us! Come with us, you're in the British navy now!
We, the United States Congress pass this act!
Embargo Act: We will stop all trade with foreign countries to protect our merchants and sailors.
No! Don't burn our sacred tiki!
The British navy needed more soldiers to help them fight the war against France. They decided that they would capture American sailors and merchants and force them to join the British navy.
Congress passed the Embargo Act, which stated that the United States of America would no longer trade with other countries. They thought that Britain would stop taking their sailors, but it did little good.
Many Americans thought that the Native Americans were helping to supply the British with weapons. Some wanted to fight the Natives and wipe them out so they could no longer give the Americans problems
