Storyboard Text

  • Impressment
  • We are going to declare war!!!
  • Oh, we will stop, I promise!
  • Native American Resistance
  • We want our territory for us! We are going to ally with Britain.
  • Great Lakes/Canada/NW (phase 1)
  • Give up now!! We got you and are taking you down!
  • Impressment was a major cause of the War of 1812. James Madison had gotten Congress to approve a war against Britain because of the relentless impressment and attacks on U.S ships. After war had been declared, Britain announced that they would stop attacking U.S ships, but they had waited too long and a war had already begun.
  • East Coast (phase 2)
  • The Native American Resistance was also a cause of the War of 1812. A Native American chief named, Tecumseh, had gathered Native Americans to fight the Americans in the Northwest Territory. Tecumseh had also allied with the British in Canada.
  • New Orleans (phase 3)
  • The war had begun and there were many people fighting. A man named, Oliver Hazard, had taken control of the U.S navy in Lake Eerie. Commodore Perry's ship was sunk after two hours of battling the British, so he got in a row boat and rowed to another ship, from which he defeat the British fleet. William Henry had followed the British when they retreated into Canada. He defeated them at the Battle of Thames. These actions made the British no longer a threat in the Northwest.
  • Effects of the War
  • HOORAY!!!!!! We defeated the British finally!
  • By 1814 the British had defeated France and were now going to throw everything they've got at defeating the U.S. The British had blockaded the coast and gone to the White House and burned it. A man named, Francis Scott Key, watched had watched the Americans stop a British invasion of Ft. McHenry in Baltimore, Maryland. Francis Scott Key had written our national anthem, "The Star Spangled Banner" as he watched the Americans fight the British.
  • The British cut off the Americans from using the Mississippi River by setting up an attack at New Orleans. In 1815 Andrew Jackson was sent, by James Madison, to command the American forces. There were 71 American casualties and 2000 British casualties.
  • Yes Mr. Madison!
  • Go attack them!!
  • Effects after the War of 1812 were very good for the U.S. The war had increased the American Patriotism, and also weakened the Native American resistance towards westward settlement. The economy of the U.S grew and started the beginning of the Industrial Revolution.
