dec 2, 1823 - Monroe Doctrine
By order of Pres. James Monroe he closed of the Western Hemisphere to the Europeans in order to minimize the amount of interventions the Europeans had with the U.S (ex: war of 1812). This was critical because since the Europeans were messing with American ships and trade, it was affecting the economy as well, and so Monroe had to take action in order to prevent more wars from happening and more declines in economic wealth for U.S. WIth this said, the relations between the two are still in a not so good position.
