Storyboard Text

  • James Madison
  • Impressment and Native American Resistance
  • Phase 1 - Battles in the Great Lakes
  • James Madison was the 4th President of the United States from 1809 to 1817. While he was president, he asked Congress for a Declarational War which led to The War of 1812.
  • Phase 2 - Washington and Fort McHenry
  • The Impressment was the period in which the British kept capturing and forcing American sailors and merchants into the British Navy, which disrupted American trade. The Native American Resistance was when the British allied themselves in the Northwest Territory with the Indians, who attacked U.S. settlers.
  • Phase 3 - Andrew Jackson and The Battle of New Orleans
  • Oliver Hazard Perry took command of the U.S. Navy. He leads ten ships against the British over Lake Eerie. A naval battle ends when they defeat the British giving America control of the lake for the duration of the war. General Willam Harrison overtakes the enemy at Moravian Town to defeat the British and Indian allies at the Battle of Thames. During the war, Tecumseh, the leader of the Indians, gets killed causing the Indians to abandon the alliance with Britain.
  • Effects of the War
  • Britain marched on Washington D.C., destroyed the city, and burned the capital to the ground. Fort McHenry on the other hand, was a successful defense of Baltimore and the motivation this defense gave Francis Scott Key, as he composed the U.S. National Anthem, "Star Spangled Banner."
  • At the Battle of New Orleans, Andrew Jackson and a force of 5000 American soldiers invade about 7000 British soldiers resulting in 2000 British casualties and only 71 U.S. casualties. Andrew Jackson became a war hero.
  • The main effect of The War of 1812 was the American industry/manufactoring grew as they were forced to produce goods that were normally acquired from Britain. This seeds the Industrial Revolution.
