When Britain went to war with France in 1794, the United States sought to stay neutral and issued a statement saying so. Britain retaliated by seizing American ships and impressing American sailors. As a result, Americans demanded a war with Britain. Fearing this would be disastrous, Washington sent John Jay to England to work out a diplomatic solution. Jay's Treaty was signed, improving relations with Britain.
