  • James Madison was elected in 1807 as president. While he was in office, he had congress repeal the embargo act, and made the Non-Intercourse act that made trading illegal with Britain and France until they recognized American neutrality, and with other parts of Europe legal. France was the first on to recognize neutrality, and trade, which made Britain mad.

  • Burn the White House down! OMG! Dinner's is here and it's fresh! LET US FEAST MY MEN!
  • Don't eat the food! ITS MINE!
  • The British in their rage started to impress american ships and crew, and used the crew as slaves. They also gave the Native Americans guns to stop settlement westward, and supported Tecumseh. As a result, James Madison declared war on June 1st, 1812 on Britain.
  • Phase 3: New Orleans.
  • We defeated the British offense sir! We lost 71 people, and they lost about 2000 troops!
  • Between 1812 and 1814, war was mostly fought by naval ships. One man named Oliver Hazard Perry was the captain of a U.S. ship. He set his ships up strategically, knowing that he couldn't defeat Britain by quantity, The battle began, and was considered a U.S. Victory later on that day. For a while, he commanded on a rowboat, because his real ship sunk. The U.S. made the British land troops also go back into Canada, and made the Northwest clear for settlement.
  • The effects on the U.S. from the war , and its end.
  • AMERICA! THE INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION! WESTWARD EXPANSION! WOOOHOOOOO!
  • In 1814, after Britain defeated France, they could finally put their full might into beating the U.S. They blockaded the U.S. coast, and had infantry march to D.C. and burn down the white house. Another invasion was planned, but Ft. McHenry in Baltimore stopped the British, and also got us our national anthem from them not giving up.
  • The British in a final decision tried to cut off American Trading ships from traveling the Mississippi by attacking and capturing New Orleans. Unfortunately for them, Andrew Jackson was there on James Madison's orders. He was able to stop the British, and lose only 71 men, compared to the 2000 the British lost.
  • Good Grief we destroyed the British! Let us eat a hearty feast!
  • On February 18th, 1815, the war was officially over, with no winning side. But thanks to this war, the Industrial revolution began in the U.S. due to the blockade, we got multiple American hero's out of the war, a higher patriotism level, and we weakened the Native American resistance. The treaty that ended the war was The Treaty of Ghent. It was morally considered a U.S. victory.
