  • For months, British troops were impressing and attacking American soldiers, merchants, and ships. The Native American's were also rebelling, and scalping many civilians.President Madison was not okay with these attacks, he wouldn't tolerate it.
  • Impressment
  • Along with the American people, President James Madison was not happy that our ships were being attacked and that the Native Americans were rebelling. Knowing that the only way America can go to war with England by getting congress's approval, he pleas to congress to go to war. After a long vote, Congress agree's to go to war with England. Thus starting the War of 1812.

  • In 1812 America finally went to war with England. Most fighting was done by the navy and army. America was greatly outnumbered but thankfully we had Oliver Perry and William Harrison, they won two major battles. American soldiers drove the British into Canada and the Northwest was safe.
  • The battles raged on in the East Coast. The British were trying to gain control of Fort McHenry, if they did America wouldn't be able to win the war. As the soldiers pushed the British back, local lawyer, Francios Scott Key was watching the battle. He wrote our national anthem, The Star Spangled Banner. American's pushed the British out of Fort McHenry.
  • Phase 2
