Transcript of Jay's Treaty and Pinckney's Treaty
Settled unresolved issues remaining from the Treaty of Paris 1783 John Jay (December 12, 1745 – May 17, 1829) was an American statesman, Patriot, diplomat, a Founding Father of the United States, and the first Chief Justice of the United States
In 1794, September 19th, Jay's Treaty was Signed in London. In order to keep a good relationship with the British, John Jay signed this unfair document. American vs. Spain American vs. Britain Pinckney's Treaty Pinckney's Treaty:
Established intentions of friendship between the United States and España Jay's Treaty:
The British would pay for all the damage they had inflicted on US(/American) ships & give up their forts(1796). It also caused a worse relationship between the US and French because as the British get the privileges, the French felt unfair. And the alliance between the Us and France broke apart. Pinckney's Treaty:
The treaty directed the United States and Spain to jointly survey the boundary line, and set the western boundary of the United States, separating it from the Spanish Colony of Louisiana as the middle of the Mississippi River from the northern boundary of the United States to the 31st degree north latitude.Spain and the United States also agreed to protect the vessels of the other party anywhere within their jurisdictions and to not detain or embargo the other's citizens or vessels. One of the most important diplomatic aims of the Washington administration was to secure recognition of American borders from the great powers. Spain at this time held the prized port of New Orleans at the mouth of the Mississippi River.Thomas Pinckney, U.S. minister to Britain, was dispatched to Spain and won two highly desirable concessions:
Spain recognized U.S. borders at the Mississippi and the 31st parallel (the northern border of Florida, a Spanish possession)
Spain granted Americans the right to deposit goods for transshipment at New Orleans.
