  • Trade was hard for American's because the French siezed their ships when they tried to trade with Britan, a country they were at war with.
  • What will we do?
  • So, Pinckney, Gerry, and Marshall went to work it out, but for weeks they were ignored by the French
  • Three French agents, X, Y, and Z, said that the minister would hold a talk for a lot of money, and American's wanted to go to war. President Adams calmed everyone down, but people thought America should have gone to war.
  • Adam's wanted to stop trade with France altogether and passed the Alien and Sedition acts, making citizenship take longer, causing American economy to struggle.
  • The acts were either repealed or expired between 1800 and 1802. The economic situation was resolved, thank goodness.
  • Now, France is one of America's greatest allies!!!
