The French Revolution

The French Revolution was going on at this time. The French were fighting against itself. It got this idea from America.

This is the French Revolution. France was having a revolution for their rights; they got this idea from America and Britain. France wanted help in the revolution and Jefferson was all about it because he was pro-France. But, Hamilton was against it because he was Pro- Britain and wanted to keep trade with them. However, they ended up staying neutral because they couldn't start anything and fight it.
