There was a thread a while ago talking about how the French were our First Enemy...

Was this war called St. Catherine's War in France?

I think they also call it "The Seven Years' War."

The French were indeed the first enemy of the United States (not counting the indians). Under the Adams administration we fought what was called the "Quasi War" against them for authorizing privateers against our shipping.

Our new Navy and our new Marines kicked their butt. Our privateers made out OK too.
