    • Political and Economic Causes of War Daniel Ron
    • Attacking American Boats • France abducted American boats trading with Britain • Britain abducted twice as many boats as France did
    • Great Britain on The Seas • Britain would stop American trade boats and abduct them • They would also search the boats for deserters of the British Navy • Britain would impress (make a person unwillingly serve in the army or navy) the runaways • Occasionally, American sailors would be mistaken for British deserters
    • Jefferson and the Embargo Acts • Jefferson created the Embargo Acts in response to abduction of American boats • Meant would not trade with any other foreign nation • Acts did little to affect Britain or France • Were repealed in 1809
    • Non-Intercourse Acts • After long negotiation, Madison created the Non-Intercourse Act • This act meant trade was not permitted with Britain, but trade was legal with France • Angered Federalists
    • A Second War with Britain • Britain did not fully remove itself after first war of independence • A second war was bound to break out • Many reasons supported American attack on Britain
    • Reasons For War • Farmers wanted to expand west for more land • Britain was supplying Native Americans with weapons to keep Americans from expanding • Also and excuse to invade Spanish Florida (a British alliance) and Canada (owned by Britain at the time)
    • Reasons Against War • Federalists opposed war • Britain was their source of trade • A war meant money would not be made • Because Madison was Republican, he did as the farmers requested (Farmers were main support group of Republicans)
