Storyboard Text

  • James Madison becomes President
  • Yay! I'm a President!!
  • War Causes (Impressment and Native American Resistance)
  • Okay.
  • I'm taking you to the British Navy, NOW!!!!!!!
  • Phase 1
  • We're all gonna die.
  • Carl, you did not sign up for this...
  • Oh! Look the British are firing at us!!!
  • James Madison was the fourth president of the United States. He served from 1808-1816. During his presidency, he urged Congress to declare war on the British.
  • Phase 2
  • One of the main causes of the was was impressment. British ships would intercept American ships that we're going to Britain to trade goods. Then the British would capture the ship and force the American sailors and merchants into the British navy. The other cause was the Native Americans in the Northwest allied themselves with the British. The British supplied the Indians with guns and in return, the Indians attacked the American settlers. The Native American resistance was led mainly by Indian leader Tecumseh.
  • Phase 3
  • Phase 1 of the was was fought mostly by the navy. Oliver Hazard Perry took command and help lead the US to victory on Lake Eerie. At the battle of Thames, William Henry Harrison defeated the British. The British also blockaded the east coast of the United States, after they won their war with France ended. This made it hard for Americans to trade with other countries.
  • Effects of the War
  • During Phase 2, the British marched up to Washington DC and literally burned down the White House. Why? Because they're savage. They also tried to lay siege to Fort McHenry, but failed. Why? Because Merica' is savage. Oh and while he was a prisoner on a British ship, Francis Key wrote the Star Spangled Banner. Why? Because he's savage.
  • What a great idea!
  • Let America burn!!!
  • Phase 3 consisted of the Battle of New Orleans. The Americans we'er greatly outnumbered, but still managed to defeat the British. Around 2,000 casualties on the British side, but only 21 Americans we're killed. Andrew Jackson led the Colonists to victory and became a war hero. Eventually, this victory scored him a presidency.
  • This is hardly a fair fight!
  • The main effect of the War of 1812 was the Industrial Revolution. After the war was over, America all stopped trade with Britain. This caused us to manufacture our goods within the country. We also expanded west since there we're not more Indian threats. The world gained more respect for America and Americans had a sense of nationalism. And finally, the Federalist party eventually was destroyed.
  • We're so proud of our country!!!!
