Storyboard Text

  • James Madison becomes President
  • Remain neutral until one respects our neutrality.
  • What are you going to do about Britain and France now, Mr. president?
  • Impressment and Native American Resistance
  • Battles in the Great Lakes & Canada
  • I'm coming for you, British fleet ships!
  • As the new President, James Madison decided to continue neutrality with Britain and France. After France accepted America's neutrality, they began trading again. Madison later asked Congress to go to war with Britain due to their attacks on U.S. ships and the impressment of American sailors. This scene is the VP asking Madison what his stance on neutrality will be.
  • Francis Scott Key & The Bombardment of Fort McHenry
  • Newly elected President James Madison declares war on Britain due to impressment and attacks on U.S. ships. Impressment was the capturing of American sailors and forcing them to serve in the British navy, while the British would attack U.S. ships when on route to France. Also, Native Americans gathered in the Northwest Territory to fight Americans, led by Tecumseh, and allied with the British in Canada. These events were causes of The War of 1812.
  • Andrew Jackson: War Hero & Battle of New Orleans
  • We must gather in the Northwest Territory to fight the Americans!
  • The first phase of The War of 1812 was primarily fought by the U.S. Navy. Oliver Hazard Perry was in charge of the Navy in Lake Eerie, and battled with British fleet ships for three hours before his ship sunk. Courageously, he got into a row boat and fought off the British ships himself! As British forces retreated into Canada, the Battle of Thames broke out, led by American General William Henry Harrison. The U.S. troops won, and the British ceased to be a threat in the Northwest.
  • Effect of the War
  • The second phase of the war was attacks along the coast. An iconic attack was when the British burned down the White House and the President's mansion in Washington D.C. Luckily, the President was not hurt in this attack. Another iconic British attack was the bombardment of Fort McHenry in Baltimore, Maryland, where the Americans were able to stop the British invasion. Francis Scott Key witnessed the attack, and wrote a song which is now used as our country's national anthem.
  • "Oh say can you see..."
  • When the British attacked New Orleans and cut off the U.S. use of the Mississippi River in 1815, James Madison sent Andrew Jackson to command American forces. The battle was intense, with 71 American casualties and 2,000 British casualties. After winning the battle and reclaiming New Orleans, Jackson was a brave war hero.
  • Mississippi River Port
  • New Orleans
  • The War of 1812 led to the Industrial Revolution by pushing Americans to realize that the U.S. needed more economic independence. They could not heavily rely on foreign countries for their goods and necessities. America needed to be able to support itself, and to start manufacturing their own goods, thus kick-starting the Industrial Revolution.
