Yes indeed we propose we make an act to make this illegal.
This has to come to a stop im tired of losing more of our men getting taken by will to fight us.
Impressment was the act of seizing for public use or impressing into public services. The British came over night and secretly invaded the american ships overnight forcing them to become naval soldiers from Great Britain.
A Lot of the sailors were forced against their own will to work for the British navy and go to war against people they didn't have problems with they were also forced to change their beliefs since they were forced to become Britains.
When the U.S found out that Britain had been doing this to there soldiers congress passed the Embargo of 1807 which made impressment illegal and gave merchants their jobs back since the U.S had closed down all ports for merchant ships.
