"Let's all remain neutral!!"
"We need the embargo act!"
The war between Britain and France began in 1803 and went on until 1815.
"Taxes are so low on my cargo! I have no money!!"
The war was on the same land as the U.S. In 1807, the U.S. passed the embargo act so they wouldn't get involved.
"GO AWAY YOU ILLEGAL TRADERS!"
Embargo means to stop all trade and commerce with other countries. In other words, this banned all foreign trade.
Because of the ban on foreign trade, taxes dwindled and traders began losing money.
Congress allowed the militia to deal with illegal traders who tried to rebel.
The embargo act had such a negative effect on the U.S. that in 1809, the act was repealed. Traders were allowed to trade anywhere besides Britain and France.
