Pinckney’s Treaty (1795)

Pinckney’s Treaty was made in order to quell Spanish fear of America encroaching on Spain’s lands. The treaty established a good relationship between the U.S. and Spain. It allowed the U.S. to have full use of the Mississippi river and New Orleans, and gave a clear definition for the borders of the U.S. and Spanish colonies.
