Summary/Abstract: The new independent status of the American colonies following their war with England created, after 1783 the need for settling an American trade of its own, exploring for new opportunities and markets. The Mediterranean Sea was one of these new trade directions for the young American trade and Levant, the Central and South-Eastern Europe were to be discovered as potentially promising regions for expanding this trade. The first trade exchanges, the merchandises traded and the official contacts aiming at encouraging these exchanges as far as to the Black Sea and Danube region were all significant for the specific character of this new trade in the area under observation. By 1850 one can say that the American trade was already an obvious reality in the region and seemed to find its own path, indicating enough vigor to expand even further.
