France and Britain both confiscated American ships and goods during the Napoleonic times. Great Britain also impressed American seamen and forced them into the British navy. This is because France and Britain were fighting each other. They did not want each other to get goods from America. And Britain was angry that Americans had French help during the American Revolution.
