America was in great debt from the revolution. Alexander Hamilton created a financial plan that helped pay off the debt. Thomas Jefferson and the Southern states, who had already paid off their debt, believed that they shouldn't have to help pay off the debts of the Northern states. In the end, Jefferson traded an approval of Hamilton's plan for the nation's capital to be in the south.
In Hamilton’s financial plan there was a government tax put on whiskey and farmers were outraged because they used their grain to make the whiskey. The outraged farmers started to rebel against the government. Hamilton believed that they should be punished for resisting the law. To end the Whiskey Rebellion, President Washington sent an army to Pennsylvania to prove a point that if you resist the law you will be punished.
Meanwhile, in France, the citizens were rebelling against their country and taking inspiration from the American Revolution. Alexander Hamilton wanted to side with Britain because he believed that their trades ways and as an ally would be helpful in the future. While Jefferson believed that going against the French Revolution would be a violation of liberty everywhere. Finally, in 1793, there was a law that said that America had to stay neutral in the French Revolution.
