I'm James Madison, I was president the of the U.S during the war of 1812. I served from 1808 to 1816.
One of the causes for the war of 1812 is that the British made an alliance with the Native Americans.
In Spring of 1814, Britain won the war against France and could now commit more troops to America so Britain marched on Washington D.C., destroyed the city, and burned the capital to the ground.
Fort McHenry was bombarded for 13 hours and it's flag was still flying over the fort. That inspired Francis Scott Key to write the “Star Spangled Banner” .
On January 8, 1815 the battle of New Orleans made Andrew Jackson a war hero. there were over 2,000 casualties for British, only 71 US casualties it was the biggest US victory in the War of 1812.
An effect of the war was that the U.S was much more respected as a country and the U.S industry grew as they were forced to produce goods that were normally imported from Britain.
