The war of 1812 was caused by the British angering us Americans in the sea, so to know more about this war let's learn what happened before, during and after the war.
NO! I DONT WANT TO JOIN YOUR NAVY!!
Before the war Britain was fighting another war with France, so the would raid American ships to take supplies and men for their navy by force. This was called impressment.
Well, to bad! We need men so that's what we'll get!
I DECLARE WAR!!!
So as the British kept attacking more, more Americans wanted war with Britain, and as more sailors got impressment, and as more British influenced natives attacked our homes, finally president James Madison agreed to war
So as the war started our first "phase" was to kick the British out of Canada, because it made it easier for the to attack us,so commander perry of the US army, battled the British and won. So that made British leave canada.
All the British must leave
As you can picture, the British were not happy that the lost canada. So phase two of the war has losses on both sides. Us Americans lost our beautiful White House to a fire set by Britain , but we did another important battle that also inspired or national anthem. The Star-Spangled Banner.
And finally the third phase of the war was when the British tried to cut of our use of the Mississippi River. But we would not back down, so Andrew Jackson ( sent by the president) went to command the fighting, and became a war hero. The war ended soon after and the treaty of Ghent was the paper proof that the war was finished.
Andrew Jackson is a hero!
