Storyboard Text

  • James Madison was the 4th president of the U.S. In 1812 he declared war on Britian since they were impressing young men in the U.S, and had been attacking American ships.
  • James Madison as President
  • Here we come England
  • Impressment and Native American Resistance
  • Phase 3: New Orleans 1815
  • The British had been impressing Americans making them work for them on ships. The Native Americans had also been causing trouble too.
  • Don't hurt me.
  • You're coming with us.
  • From 1812 to 1814 the navy mostly fought the war. Oliver Hazard Perry took command of the U.S Navy in Lake Eerie. He fought the British for 2 hours, his ship sunk, and then he got into another boat and destroyed the British fleet. The British fled to Canada where William Henry Harrison defeated them a the Battle of Thames.
  • Phase 1: Great Lakes/Canada/NW
  • Victory is ours!!!
  • We'll be back
  • Bye Bye White House
  • Since England had defeated France they now could give it all against the U.S. They blocked the coast and destroyed the White House. In Baltimore Francis Scott Key watched a bombardment on Ft. McHenry. America won that and made our national anthem.
  • Phase 2: East Coast 1814
  • Bye Bye White House
  • British attacked New Orleans to cut off American use of Mississippi River. Madison sent Andrew Jackson to command the Americans. American Casualties: 71, British: 2,000
  • Of course General Jackson!
  • Men, today you fought well and you were very brave. I thank you so much for this.
  • The effects of the war: War heroes were made like Andrew Jackson, and Oliver Perry. The Natives were not a big threat to expansion anymore. Now the U.S didn't rely on trading as much and industrialized the economy of the U.S. AKA The Industrial Revolution
  • The U.S is too powerful. We must retreat to empty lands with no white men.
  • Effects of the war
  • What will happen now?
