I president James Madison declare war on England, again! They have been terrorizing us for many months and it's our turn to strike back. I hope and pray all of you, congress men, have the same feelings, and will declare war!
British kept attacking U.S. ships that were shipping goods to France so they would stop trading with them. The Natives also sided with the British. Tecumseh the Native leader organized the Natives to fight us in the Northwest territory. These are some of the reasons we called for war.
The British are no longer a threat in the Northwest Territory
I, Oliver Hazard Perry, won the war against the British between 1812 and 1814. We battled for two hours before my ship sunk. That's when I rowed to the British fleet boats and destroyed them.
That is where I, General William Henry Harrison, followed the British into Canada as they retreated and defeated them on the ground.
The British has blockaded the coast and is not burning down the white house! I can't believe that just because they defeated France they think they can destroy us.
President Madison sent Andrew Jackson to command the American forces during this battle of 1815. There was over twice as many British casualties as Americans.
The British's plan is to attack New Orleans so we can cut off the Americans use of the Mississippi river.
Effects of the War
American Patriotism grew when the war ended and now we have many heros. Including Andrew Jackson, William Henry Harrison, and Oliver Hazard Perry. Westward settlement increased because the Native Resistance weakened and U.S. manufacturing took off when the war ended!
