We confront the pirates who were taxing people to pass through the Mediterranean, WE WIN!!!
Napolionic war in Europe
France and England were impressing (kidnapping) our sailors to fight. We tell them to stop but they don't.
Say that no U.S. ships will leave our harbor. So that our sailors will not be impressed. Bad for business.
Non- Intercourse Acts
U.S. ships will not trade with England or France. Kept us out of war. Good.
Madison makes an agreement with france so that they would respect our right as a country. England still is kidnapping our sailors.

While Napoleonic war was going on, the European countries neglected their colonies in America. Many of these colonies had revolutions and we supported them. We told Europe to keep out of western hemisphere and we would keep out of their affairs.
Missouri wanted to join the union as a slave state, but this would upset the balance of slave and non slave states. Henry clay first separates Mass. into Mass. and Maryland to balance, Missouri becomes a state. 36'30 line drawn extended into Louisiana future states south of line slave states. north= free states.
Statistical tie between Jackson and Adams. Clay decides that Adams should win and strikes a bargain with Adams. If he helps Adams win then Adams would make him secretary of state.

Henry clay- 1.) S.C. stays in union and collects tariffs. 2.) The National Government will reduce tariffs.
