Enough is enough. I am declaring war on Great Britain.
After the War
Purpose of the war
James Madison was fed up with how Great Britain was treating the US. He declared war on them to stop what they were doing to the country.
There was no clear winner or loser of the war of 1812. No one gained or lost land.
Even though there were no clear winners or losers, the purpose of the war and the reason there was a war was from the buildup of all the cruel things that Great Britain was doing to America and the country couldn't take it anymore.
