Storyboard Text

  • We're here to capture you Americans
  • We will be taking this land for ourselves
  • You can not keep expanding and taking our peoples land
  • Winners!!!!
  • British impressment of merchants and the capturing of American ships was a reoccurring problem that eventually led to the war of 1812. Some of the merchants captured from the American ships were British.
  • I'm Francis Scott Key and I feel inspired
  • There were Indian issues with the Americans because they were taking their land. The Natives sided with Britain during this war, since their mutual enemy were the Americans.
  • Jackson to the rescue!
  • The Americans were defeated in a battle during the beginning of the war in Canada and suffered many losses (Canadian losses)
  • Treaty of Ghent
  • The British advanced on Washington and they burned DC. They set fire to the Capitol and the White House, but the Americans held firm. The British also hammered Ft. McHenry, but they were unable to capture the city. Francis Scott Key saw this and was inspired, so he wrote the Star Spangled Banner, which boosted nationalism.
  • Ft. McHenry
  • This Battle was the third British blow and its victory restored nationalism, honor, and self-confidence in America. The British lost by making the mistake of launching a front assault. 
  • The Treaty of Ghent was signed on Christmas Eve in 1814. The treaty ended the war of 1812, and was an armistice; It was a virtual draw.
