  • Phase 3- Battle of New Orleans
  • The war started in 1812 with the American Navy and leader, Oliver Hazard Perry, in Lake Eerie. Harrison then defeats the Natives at the Battle of Thames, killing Tecumseh.
  • Effects of the War
  • No more kidnapping!
  • Era of Good Feelings!
  • The British decided to burn down all of Washington D.C., bringing down the white house. Then, the American Navy descends onto Fort McHenrey. Whilst that was happening, the American flag was still standing dispite all the bombing, thus leading to the inspired song "Star Spangled Banner".
  • At this battle, the Americans were outnumbered. Fortunately, Andrew Jackson had enough drive to get the US navy to kill more than 2,000 British soldiers. This was the biggest US victory.
  • In conclusion, the Treaty of Ghent was signed. Little did everyone know that it was signed two weeks before the Battle of New Orleans. Unfortunately, this didn't resolve much but the fighting. Although, it did lead to manufacturing in the US.
