The Quasi War was the only conflict in which the United States went to combat against France. During this conflict Great Britain supported the U.S. The American Revolution was the conflict in which the United States was at war with Great Britain and the French were allies to the U.S.

Trying to stay neutral, Jefferson slapped embargoes on both British and French goods. Unfortunately, in the long run, this resulted in economic problems for the United States. In addition, Britain retaliated by seizing American ships and cargo.

France had been an economic partner with the fledgling United States of America during the Revolutionary War. France had everything to gain from the defeat of its old enemy, Great Britain and so contributed in many ways to support the cause of independence for the 13 Colonies. However, it became clear to the French that the American movement of colonization was encroaching on New France's remaining territory in the Mississippi basin and it would be only a matter of time before French sovereignty in North America was lost.

After the French Revolution, there was little hope of the New Republic sustaining control over their colonies in North America. They had neither the money nor the manpower to fight for their land. Napoleon was too busy conquering European territory to concern himself with North America. He could not afford to wage war in two hemispheres. Thus there was wisdom exercised on the part of both the French Emperor and the U.S. President, Thomas Jefferson to finalize the 1804 purchase of the remaining French territory in North America at an affordable price that was appealing to the French. Thus a costly war was avoided.
