During 1807,British soldiers were forcing American sailor's to join their navy.There were at least 10,000 sailors forced to join.They also wanted to search ships for deserters of their navy.
We need to search your ship for any deserters! If you do not, we will fire and take you into our navy.
Before I took the presidents office,Congress replaced the embargo act to allow trade with other foreign countries.Still not letting France or Britain trade.
Sir we are ready to trade with other countries.
I can't believe it!! Congress acted again on the Embargo act .We finally get to trade with other countries.
Hey! Just keep in mind, if you vote for the U.S neutrality, we will ban you from trade.
Listen up! You all are being forced into our navy! We found you all on ships and some may be deserters or american's ,but doesn't change the fact that we are forcing you into our navy.
Since the American's were losing ground, a group called the War Hawks proposed to the president to invade Canada to claim territory for the United States.Since the problems they had were in Britain's favor, the president agreed to the War hawk's idea.
The U.S attempted to take over Canada in 1812.The attacks were unsuccessful,During the Battle of York, the American's took northern Canada.
