Treaty of Commerce and Navigation Between the United States and the Ottoman Empire

Full Treaty between the United States and the Ottoman Empire, showing that the two had a shared interest in economic growth.  It established an official trade agreement between the two, however, no substantial trade was done, partly because the agreement was signed during the United States’ Civil War, and was likely a more diplomatic move than an economic one.
