He sent a force of 150 to meet a supply train. They were beaten back by Indian forces led by none other than Tecumseh. Hull then sent another 600 and they were attacked and forced back. Hull’s attempt to capture Canada failed and only encouraged the Natives and Britain even more.
  • The Convention was a series of meetings that attempted to discuss the Federalist grievances concerning the War of 1812. There were political problems arising from the federal government that needed to be discussed. After several days of debating, decisions were reached. On the final report, released on January 5, 1815, it proposed several amendments to the Constitution. The news of the Treaty of Ghent caused the propositions to go unnoticed.
  • The Treaty ended the War of 1812. While the treaty did not mention either the impressment of U.S. sailors or the rights of neutral U.S. vessels, it did open the Great Lakes region to American expansion. News of the treaty took months to spread across the Atlantic. The Treaty of Ghent successfully ended all hostilities between Great Britain and the United States.
