Troubles at home and abroad

  1. 1. Troubles at Home and Abroad Chapter 8 Section 3
  2. 2. Conflicts in the Northwest  The Northwest at this time was not the Northwest that we think of today. Remember that the United States’ western boundary was the MS River.

  4. 4.  “Mad” Anthony Wayne was sent to end Native attacks that had been taking their toll. After the Battle of Fallen Timbers, the defeated Natives signed the Treaty of Greenville.  That cleared the way for settlers to take what is now Ohio.
  5. 5. The French Revolution    Began in 1789 with the Storming of the Bastille on July 14th - At first, Americans supported the Revolution. By 1793, the Revolution was known for its Reign of Terror, when 17,000 people were executed. Even King Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette, his Queen, were not spared. Jefferson thought the bloody revolution was necessary, but Hamilton thought it was horrible.
