According to Barnes Public US History School Book 1885:
 John Adams one term: 1797-1801:

By 1797 there were now 16 states in the union. Vermont joined in 1791 and Kentucky in 1792 and Tennessee in 1796. The Indians in the North West who had caused much trouble were now quiet and the people began to grow prosperous but there was much excitement over affairs in France. The French made a great deal of trouble for our country. They tried to put warships here to serve against the British and their agents stirred up discontent among the people. Washington sent home the French minister for meddling with American affairs.

After John Adams became president he sent Charles Pinkney as a minister to France but the French Government refused to receive him. The officers hinted to Pinkney that they might bribe him with money. This was an insult to the United States and Pinkney resented the proposed with indignation! He said, “Millions for defense but not a cent for tribute!” When the news reached America everybody applauded the saying and it became a by word among the people. Now the country again needed to get ready in case of war.

Ships were sent out, new taxes levied and an army was raised. Washington was again called into service as commander and chief. Several battles took place at sea but before the quarrel could develop into a serious war Napoleon became the ruler of France and put a stop to the trouble. During this time was around the time that congress passed the unpopular laws, “Alien and sedition” that angered the majority of the people because it gave the president power to send a foreigner out of the country whenever he saw fit and anyone who disagreed or even wrote about what the president did would be fined or even imprisoned. These unpopular laws were against the spirit of liberty.

In the next president election Thomas Jefferson banned these laws as against American liberty.
