The British were taking the American ships.
British and the Americans did not want to fight another war with each other, so George Washington sent John Robert the Chief Justice of the U.S. to compromise.
In November 1794 the two sides signed Jay’s Treaty. Jay's Treaty settled disagreements that had arisen between the United States and Great Britain in the early 1790s.
The British would pay damages on seized American ships. The United States agreed to pay the debt they owed the British.
Jay's Treaty was unpopular and caused violent protests. The citizens thought the treaty hurt trade and did not punish the British enough.
Southerners were especially angry that the treaty did not ask Britain to repay them for slaves that Britain had set free during the Revolutionary War.
