Pinckney's Treaty by Samuel Flagg Bemis

"Pinckney's Treaty" is an in-depth historical analysis of the 1795 agreement between the United States and Spain, also known as the Treaty of San Lorenzo. The book delves into the geopolitical implications of the agreement, which defined the boundaries between Spanish colonies and the U.S., provided for free navigation of the Mississippi River, and set terms for the prevention of Native American hostilities. It further explores the key figures involved in the negotiation and ratification of the treaty, their motivations, and the lasting impact of the treaty on U.S. territorial expansion and international relations.
