Storyboard Text

  • On June 1st, 1812, U.S. President James Madison asked Congress for a declaration of war because of British impressment, Native American resistance, the Chesapeake-Leopard affair, and the War Hawks' encouragement. This war is considered the "2nd War of Independence".
  • President James Madison
  • Whether the United States shall continue passive under these...
  • The British captured and forced American sailors and merchants into the British Navy. This also disrupted foreign trade.
  • British Impressment/Native American Resistance (causes of the war)
  • Welcome to the British Navy! Take off that rubbish and put on our uniform!
  • The Native Americans, England's ally, were given British weapons so they can attack Americans in the Northwest territory as they didn't want the Americans on their land.
  • I, Tecumseh, leader of the Native Americans, will put the Americans to their death!
  • One of the first parts of the War of 1812, naval battles occurred at the Great Lakes. Oliver Hazard Perry was the leader in charge of the U.S. Navy in Lake Eerie.
  • Phase 1- Naval Battles (Great Lakes War)/Battle of Thames
  • I'm ready to attack the British at any moment.
  • At the Battle of Thames,the British were defeated in Canada. Also, the Native Americans stopped fighting as Tecumseh who gave them the will to fight died.
  • He who gave us courage is gone...how can we fight now?
  • Let the spirits of the almighty Tecumseh be forever with us.
  • In the second phase of the War of 1812, the British laid siege on Fort McHenry. But, the Americans fought back and prevented the fort from being taken away.
  • Phase 2- Fort McHenry (Francis Scott Key)
  • BOOM!!
  • As Francis Scott Key looked out the window of his prison cell, he saw the American flag still waving proudly among the chaos at Fort McHenry. This inspired him to write the "Star-Spangled Banner".
  • Oh, say, can you see, by the dawn's early light...
  • The last part of the War of 1812 was the Battle of New Orleans, where the British experienced more casualties than the U.S. This battle occurred after the War's end due to bad communication.
  • Phase 3- The Battle of New Orleans (Andrew Jackson)
  • Finally. Victory for the U.S. after many injuries on our side and casualties for the British.
  • Despite winning a battle that was technically not within the time frame of the War of 1812, Andrew Jackson became known as a "war hero" and received recognition from many Americans.
  • Everyone look over there!! It's the war hero coming down!
  • Can you believe he defeated many of the British men??
  • Although there were many effects from the War of 1812, the most important one was the Industrial Revolution. American industry and manufacturing grew because they were forced to make goods and supplies that were normally obtained from the British.
  • Effects of the War of 1812 (Industrial Revolution)
  • How can we use coal everyday?
  • What about better technology? Perhaps geared towards agriculture?
