  • Fort McHenry
  • There are two main causes of the war. One being the Native American resistance caused by them joining with Britain. Another was impressment. That was when the British would attack American Sailors and force them to join their navy
  • Battle of NOLA
  • Oliver Hazard Perry was the commander of the U.S fleet in Lake Erie. Perry's ship was sunk, but he rowed to another and sunk the British fleet. Shortly after, William Henry Harrison and his men took out the rest of the British and Tecumseh in Canada, ending the threat from the North.
  • Effects
  • While being imprisoned on a British ship during the bombardment of Fort McHenry, Francis Scott Key wrote our country's national anthem. The flag he described is still flying after the 13 hours of siege.
  • "oh say can you see..."
  • Commander, and future president, Andrew Jackson is praised for his service at the Battle of New Orleans. His 7,000 troops killed over 2,000 British and had only 71 casualties on his side. It was the US's biggest victory.
  • Since the US couldn't trade during the war, they had to make their own goods. This increased the numbers of factories and jobs in America thus boosting the economy. It caused more growth in industry, causing the industrial revolution.
