The Jay Treaty of 1794 is an important event in American diplomatic history. It helped to prevent United States involvement in a European war and made American neutrality one of the principles of American diplomacy until the creation of the Atlantic Community in 1941. The cleavage between the Federalists and the Republicans over the Treaty was one of the first partisan foreign policy debates under the government of the Constitution, and it was often repeated, as in 1919 between Henry Cabot lodge and Woodrow Wilson over the entry of the United States into the League of Nations.
