The British began impressing American sailors into their navy.


British ships would hail or overtake American ships and demand to be allowed on the ship to inspect if any British sailors had deserted from the British Navy to join the American Navy. Under suspicious circumstance the British would claim American sailors and take them on their ships without formal paperwork or any proof that those sailors taken had ever served in the British Navy?
