Burlingame Treaty

The Burlingame Treaty, ratified in 1868, between the United States and China, amended the Treaty of Tientsin[?] and established formal friendly relations with China and placed it on Most Favored Nation[?] status.

Importantly, Chinese immigration to the United States was encouraged. The treaty was reversed in 1882 by the Chinese Exclusion Act.
