French Revolution --
The French Revolution began in 1789 with some nonviolent restrictions on the king, but became more
hostile in 1792 when France declared war on Austria. Seeking help from America, the French pointed to the Franco-American
Alliance of 1778. Jeffersonians leaned toward helping France due to the treaty. Hamiltonians leaned toward helping England
due to economic benefits. Not wanting to get involved for fear of damage to the trade business, Washington gave the Neutrality
Proclamation, which made America neutral. This led to arguments between Americans and French. After fighting with the
French over such things as the Jay Treaty, the Americans came to peace with France in 1800. The French Revolution was not a war within a country, but a war that affected the world.
