  • Of Course!
  • Elect me for President!
  • Impressment and Native Resistance start War of 1812
  • You're in our Navy now!
  • Phase 1- Battles in the Great Lakes
  • Shoot the British and the natives!
  • James Madison is elected the 4th president of the United States. He is elected with no opposition and was one of the most loved presidents. He was sick of previous presidents not going to war against countrys giving them problems, so he ended up being the one to start the War of 1812
  • Phase 2- Francis Scott Key and the Bombardment of Fort McHenry
  • Don't stop fighting! No matter what!
  • Britain didn't like America trading with their enemy, France, so British ships began capturing American sailors and forcing them into the British Navy. This made many Americans upset because their citizens were being kidnapped. Natives in the northwest were fighting Americans because the British were giving them supplies.
  • Phase 3- Andrew Jackson a War Hero at the Battle of New Orleans
  • Most of the War of 1812 was fought by the Navy. Oliver Hazard Perry lead the navy at Lake Erie, and was able to defeat the British there. He was able to kill the leader of the Native resistance, so the natives were no longer a problem.
  • Effects of the War of 1812
  • An american base called Port McHenry, lead by Francis Scott Key, was bombarded by the British navy. Even while under heavy fire, Francis was able to hold the fort for 14 hours until the siege ended. While it wasn't a real victory, but it wasn't a loss either.
  • Andrew Jackson became a war hero at the Battle of New Orleans. Outnumbered, Andrew used the terrain to his advantage and lost only 71 U.S. soldiers, while Britain lost 2,000! Andrew Jackson strategy and wit saved thousands of men and made him a war hero.
  • W-We... We barely killed any of them...
  • After defeating Britain for a second time, America earned even more respect from foreign countries. Nationalism and Patriotism were strong throughout the country. Most importantly, business and manufacturing was much stronger in the U.S.
  • Wow! They really are powerful..!
