Neutrality Act

Redirected from Neutrality Acts

Several United States laws have been called Neutrality Acts.


The Neutrality Act of 1935 prohibited American citizens from selling arms to belligerants in international war. It resulted from Italy's invasion of Ethiopia.


The Neutrality Act of 1937 stated that United States citizens could not sell arms to belligerants in Civil Wars, including the government side. It resulted from the Spanish Civil War.


Later in 1937, a second Neutrality Act forbade travel by U.S. citizens on ships of belligerents. This was aimed at the Sino-Japanese War (1937-1945).
