Jefferson envisioned an agrarian society that used diplomacy rather than military force to execute American foreign policy. Therefore he reduced the size of both the American Army and Navy. His issue of the Embargo Act of 1807 did more harm because American farmers and manufactorers had no outlets to sell their goods. Critics say his decisions damaged the economy and left America unprotected. The War of 1812 was a conflict between America and Britain caused partially by British violations of American shipping rights such as the impressment of sailors.
