Type: E Title: Embargo Act of 1807 10. Describe the effects the Embargo Act of 1807 had on the United States?
~ The Embargo Act of 1807 was a general embargo enacted by the United States Congress against Great Britain and France during the Napoleonic Wars. The circumstances leading to the embargo arose from flagrant violations of US neutrality, in which American merchantmen and their cargo were seized as contraband of war by the belligerent European navies. The British Royal Navy, in particular, resorted to impressment, forcing thousands of American seamen into service on their warships. Great Britain and France, engaged in a life or death struggle for control of Europe, rationalized the plunder of US shipping as incidental to war and necessary for their survival. The Chesapeake-Leopard Affair was a particularly egregious example of British aggression violating American neutrality. The deliberate diplomatic insults and presumptuous official orders issued in support of these depredations by European powers were widely recognized as grounds for a US declaration of war.
