Zachary Taylor


What significant treaty did the government sign during Taylor’s presidency?

The Clayton-Bulwer Treaty of 1850 established that any new canal constructed in Central America was to be neutral, not under the control of either the United States or Great Britain. Neither side was supposed to colonize or exercise dominion over any part of Central America. The treaty was named after U.S. Secretary of State John M. Clayton and British minister to the United States Henry Lytton Bulwer.
