Washington Versus Jefferson - RE: French Revolutionary Wars

The fourth of July was just celebrated a couple of days ago but this blog publisher is still on a “patriotic high”, so bear with me and lets continue taking a look back at America's beginnings.

The French Revolution occurred between 1789 – 1799.
  • The French Revolutionary Wars occurred between 1792 – 1802, overlapping the French Revolution; and Revolutionary France fought two coalitions of European powers.
    • First coalition (organized in 1792) was comprised of Austria, Prussia, Sardinia, Britain, Spain and the Netherlands.
    • Second coalition (organized 1798) included Britain, Russia, Austria, Naples, Portugal and Turkey.
  • Despite the opposition, Napoleon Bonaparte emerged as a military and political leader. From 1799 – 1804, he set himself up as a dictator; and in 1804, proclaimed himself emperor of France.

Meanwhile ... 
 


George Washington was serving as the first president of the United States from 1789 – 1797.  Washington maintained a neutral stance on the French Revolutionary Wars, not deeming them a national priority requiring U.S. involvement. 

Thomas Jefferson opposed this stance and favored strong federal involvement in foreign affairs. It is likely Jefferson had more insight because he served as a minister to France during Washington's presidential term.  Perhaps the first POTUS should have deferred to his judgment.

Happy Birthday America! - Remembering US (Pt 1)

“Before the Republicans, There Were Whigs”.  Some think this political party should make a comeback!


It's the birthday of the United States of America. Citizens generally celebrate the holiday with a cookout and fireworks. It's also a good day to reflect on some of the history of this country, i.e. how we got to where we are today. Sharing link to an article about one of our political parties.
