The Qasi War was another major event that America had to deal with when John Adams was the President. The French got angry with the British, and started seizing all the American ships that were trading with the British. John Adams sent a committee that was to negotiate a deal with the French. That is why the Marine Corps and the Navy were formed so that in case when diplomacy fails, then they can take over.
