  • Phase 2: Francis Scott Key and the Bombardment for Fort McHenry
  • The British for years had been impressing American for years. This means that the British would capture American sailors and make them work for England. The English also gave weapons and equipment to Native Americans who would make life miserable for American settlers. A Native American chief named Tecumseh allied with the British to unitite the Native Tribes
  • Phase 3: Andrew Jackson as a war hero and the Battle of New Orleans
  • We'll put you on a trail where there will be tears.
  • Through 1812 and 1814, the war was fought by the navy. Commander Oliver Hazard Perry took control of the small, twelve ship army. These battles were fought on the Great Lakes. Perry defeated the British army despite the huge advantages the British had. William Harry Harrison took control of ground forces in Canada and drove the British out of the Northwest.
  • Effects of the War of 1812
  • Manufacturing is the future of America.
  • When the British beat France in 1814, Great Britain was able to use its full military power. The British decided to invade Washington D.C. They burned down the White House and the president's mansion. On a similar date, the British invaded Ft. McHenry in Baltimore. The Americans drove the British out and a man named Francis Scott Key was inspired. Afterwards he wrote our national anthem, The Star Spangled Banner.
  • Time to attack!
  • In this phase of the war, the British attacked New Orleans so the United States could not use the Mississippi. President Madison sent Andrew Jackson to New Orleans to defeat the British. Although the war had already ended, Jackson defeated 2000 British soldiers in 1815.
  • After the war, many things in America changed. American patriotism increased, honoring heroes such as Andrew Jackson. The British stopped backing up the Native Americans, so Americans were able to move west. Finally the British blockade allowed for industrialism to increase in the United States.
