  • Dealing With Pirates
  • Adams Pursues Peace
  • Jefferson Solves the Problem
  • If you stop attacking us we'll stop trading!
  • In 1803 France and Great Britain were at war. As things started to get heated, both nations began to capture American ships that were trading with their enemy.  
  • Protecting Sailors and Settlers
  • Okay!
  • John Adams knew that even though war might be good for the Federalist Party, it wouldn't be good for the country. In 1799 he sent a group of men to France to work for peace.
  • The War of 1812
  • WAR!
  • In 1802, Thomas Jefferson sent a fleet of warships to the Mediterranean to protect American shipping interests. 
  • The Battle of New Orleans
  • We won the war!
  • In 1809, President James Madison  tried a new approach to protecting Americans at sea; he told Great Britain and France that if they stop their attack on American ships, the United States will stop trading with their enemy.
  • James Madison chose to not go with isolationism. On July 17, 1812, Congress declared war on Great Britain even though they had only 7,000 poorly trained men and a 16 ship navy.
  • 7,500 British troops marched confidently into battle on January 8, 1815. General Andrew Jackson's troops met them with deadly fire. The Battle of New Orleans was the greatest US victory of the war of 1812. Two weeks earlier American and British diplomats met in Ghent, Belgium and signed a peace treaty, but the news didn't reach New Orleans until after battle.
