Storyboard Text

  • Hi, I'm James Madison!
  • I am Tecumseh, the Native American chief. I will defend our land!
  • PHASE 1
  • We have finally defeated the British! They are no longer a danger to us!
  • James Madison, a Democratic-Republican, is elected the fourth president of the United States in 1809. Madison declared the war between the U.S. and Britain in 1812.
  • PHASE 2
  • And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air, gave proof through the night that our flag was still there!
  • As the U.S. sent ships to trade with France, the British would attack them and impress the U.S. sailors. In addition, the British also allied with Native Americans in the Northwest Territory who were fighting against the Americans.
  • PHASE 3
  • Oliver Hazard Perry commanded the U.S. Navy in Lake Eerie, where he defeated the British and their ships. This made the British retreat to Canada. Then, General William Henry Harrison followed the British and defeated them at the Battle of Thames. The British were no longer a threat in the Northwest.
  • After finally defeating France, Britain decided it was time to defeat the U.S. The British had blockaded the coast of the U.S. and burned down the White House. Then the British bombarded Ft. McHenry in Baltimore, Maryland. The "Star Spangled Banner" was created by Francis Scott Key, who watched this battle.
  • The British attacked New Orleans in order to cut off American use of the Mississippi River. President James Madison sends Andrew Jackson to lead the American forces against the British. The Battle of New Orleans results in a great American victory.
  • After the War of 1812, the U.S. began to realize how heavily they had relied on foreign trade and goods. Therefore citizens began purchasing and creating goods from America. This helped to improve the economy and led to the start of the Industrial Revolution.
