Hello my name is James Madison. A couple months ago I made a request to go to war with Britain. Congress accepted and we have been at war ever since. Britain was attacking our ships so we have to put a stop to this.
Two reasons the U. S. decided to go to war are impressment and Native American resistance. Impressment is where Britain takes over American ships when we are trading with France. Britain can be so annoying sometimes.
We have taken over this ship. It is now property of Great Britain.
We fought the U.S in the great lakes and lost. The U. S. is a very strong and unforgiving army.
After the British defeated the French they concentrated all of their fire power on the U.S. They then burned down the white house which was a terrible loss.
I am Andrew Jackson and I defeated the British. People call me a war hero which is awesome. I am sad that we lost the white house but now we can trade with fear of impressment.
We present this medal to Andrew Jackson for his bravery.
The war of 1812 helped to start the industrial revolution. This is because we needed to rely on our own materials instead of trading. The increased rate of factory building helped us to become a more modern country.
