Storyboard Text

  • I was president from 1808-1816, and had to overcome the War of 1812.
  • The causes of the war were British Impressment, Britain capturing our ships, the disruption of American foreign trade and British alliances with Native Americans.
  • In August 1814, the British now had more troops. They marched to Washington D.C., destroying the Capital and the city.
  • At Fort McHenry the British had 13,000 militiamen to make sure the fort wasn't taken. It was ordered to have such a large American flag over Fort McHenry that the British wouldn't have a hard time seeing it.
  • At the battle of New Orleans, there were 7,000 U.S. militiamen and 7,500 British militiamen. There were 2,000 casualties for Britain and only 71 for the U.S. This battle made a war hero out of Andrew Jackson.
  • After the war America's industry grew because they couldn't rely on Britain anymore. The Native American resistance will no longer exist and the Ohio River Valley will be open for Midwest expansion. America had again proven itself and it showed power, prestige and we get respect. Along with that there is also Nationalism among the states. THE END!!
