  • The use of the Mississippi was cut off from Americans because the British attacked New Orleans. President James Madison sent Andrew Jackson to command the American forces against the British in 1815. About 2,000 British men were wounded or killed and only about 71 Americans died or got wounded.
  • Neither America nor Britain won the War of 1812. The war was ended by the Treaty of Ghent. After the war Andrew Jackson, William Henry Harrison, and Oliver Hazard Perry were considered war heroes. Also the Native Americans' resistance toward westward settlement was weakened. This was also the beginning of the Industrial Revolution.
