This chapter examines American consular records in order to understand the priorities of the United States and the configuration of American shipping within the Mediterranean during the French Revolutionary Wars. It explores the establishment of American consulates; the increase in American diplomatic and military presence; the increase in American trade due to the demand for neutral transport during wars; the presence of American ships in Mediterranean ports; and the emergent patterns in American shipping. It discovers that American trade in the Mediterranean was a profitable enough enterprise to justify the Tripolitanian War, but further research into American economic affairs is needed to better understand the long-term American interest in Mediterranean affairs.

Keywords:   American Consulates, American Diplomacy, French Revolutionary Wars, American Maritime Economics
