[NEW!] American Foreign Policy Under Washington, Adams, Jefferson & Madison | APUSH Period 4 Flashcards and Practice Tests
Dive deep on the most critical aspects of early United States foreign policy under our first four presidents. Learn about the fledgling American government’s efforts to convince European nations to respect its sovereignty and treat it as an equal on the world economic stage (spoiler alert: it didn’t always work…until it did).
- George Washington: Revolutionary troublemaker, military genius, Founding Father, first president of the United States, and future face of the $1 bill. Is there anything he couldn’t do? Abide by our end of the Franco-American Alliance, for one. Convince Britain and France to respect American sovereignty, for another. Fully prevent our nation from “entangling alliances”, for a third. Such was America’s isolationist foreign policy under Washington…
- John Adams: America’s second president wasn’t exactly a foreign policy darling. He responded to the XYZ Affair and the Quasi-War with France not with military or diplomatic actions, but by signing laws that delayed immigrants’ right to vote (Naturalization Act), authorized the deportation of immigrants from nations at war with the U.S. (Alien Enemies Act), and made it illegal to criticize the government (Sedition Act). No wonder he didn’t get a second term…
- Thomas Jefferson: Third President of the U.S., but the first one who stood up to PIRATES and refused the grand tradition of paying them off to let American merchant ships sail unmolested through the Mediterranean. Jefferson had a lot on his plate, foreign policy-wise, what with Napoleon stirring up wars at every turn, Britain forcing American sailors into service in its Royal Navy (“impressing” meant something different back then), and unsuccessful embargoes left and right. It wasn’t all bad news though: Under Jefferson, the U.S. nearly doubled in size thanks to the Louisiana Purchase…
- James Madison: Father of the Constitution, political thinker, statesman, lawyer, husband of Dolley. Oh, and fourth president of the United States. Learn all about this Founding Father’s impact on early American foreign policy, from the diplomatic, military, and economic messes he inherited from his predecessors to his attempts to right the ship of state (hello, War of 1812!).
