What became a stumbling block when the U.S. and France were negotiating a peace with the British was A. [ France wanted England to return Gibraltar to Spain. What none of them knew was that France, under its completely separate treaty of alliance with Spain, could not make peace without Spanish agreement; indeed, not without a guarantee that the British stronghold of Gibraltar, commanding the
narrow entrance to the Mediterranean Sea from the Atlantic Ocean, would be handed over to Spain. ]
