  • The XYZ Affair was a conflict between the French and the US. The French were being bribed by X, Y, and Z. They encountered each other in the middle of the French expedition to meet John Adams. They were asked to pay $10 Million as a bribe to meet with him.
  • Impressment was when each government created a set of rules that didn't allow America to trade with other foreign nations forcing the merchants to have to move to somewhere they could get trade. Little did they know, the French was waiting for them midway to take all the war supplies they had.
  • This new law banned trade only with Britain, France, and their colonies. It also stated that the United States would resume trading with the first side that stopped violating US neutrality.
