During the fight the American flag kept waving which meant the Americans were winning. Out of patriotism he began to write a poem that we now know today as the Star Spangled Banner .
  • On December 14, 1814, The United States and Great Britain signed a treaty ending the War of 1812. The signing of this treaty didn't get around to everyone though and The Battle of New Orleans was still fought. It was a bloody battle led by future president , Andrew Jackson and ended with American victory.
  • After the war most Americans were cut from main foreign suppliers so they didn't have access to foreign goods. Along with that the British started making blockades along the eastern seaports. Since they had absolutely no way of foreign trade anymore they began to trade with American merchants. Soon American factories started to expand and people started to believe that manufacturing was more important than agriculture.
