After the British defeated the Americans at the Battle of Bladensburg, Major Robert Ross lead the British army to burn the buildings of the Americans, including the Capital, while heading towards the Executive Mansion to burn down.
When the British won the Battle of Bladensburg, President Madison, and other important services fled from the Executive Mansion to a little town called Brookeville, known today as "The United States for a Day". Madison stayed with a Quaker's house, named Caleb Bentley, the house known as the Madison House.

Good idea, mate!
Meanwhile, Dolley Madison tells the slaves to make a late dinner for her husband's return. While the dinner was getting ready, she receives a letter from her husband saying to leave the Executive Mansion right away!
Dolley tells the slaves to stop making the dinner and told them to gather the valuables of the Executive Mansion, including the George Washington Painting.
Dolley left the Executive Mansion with the important items, when she heard the gallops of the British horses getting closer and closer.
A big storm made the British retreat back to their boats, which most of them are damged because of the storm. Many British soldier got hurt during the storm, but the storm save the Excutive Mansion. This storm is well known today as "The Storm That Saved Washington".
