Storyboard Text

  • James Madison As President
  • Native American Resistance and Impressment
  • The British must stop impressing our sailors! This is an outrage!
  • What about the Indians?! They are as big of a problem as well!
  • Phase 1
  • Trying to stick to his plan of being neutral, Madison made a deal with France to remain impartial. They began trading with each other until Britain started impressing U.S. ships. So Madison went to war.
  • Phase 2
  • Tecumseh brought together the Native American tribes in the Northwest territory to fight the Americans, so they wouldn't have to give up their land. At the same time Britain was impressing Americans working on ships. They would make them join the Navy.
  • Phase 3
  • Oliver Hazard Perry took control of the U.S. Navy in Lake Eerie. They fought for 2 hours before Perry's ship was sunk. After that he commanded his troops from a rowboat and still won!
  • Effects of the War
  • After Britain defeated Napoleon in France, Britain focused on beating the U.S. The British marched to Washington D.C. and burned down the White House. At about the same time Francis Scott Key witnessed the bombardment of Fort McHenry and wrote The Star Spangled Banner, our country's National Anthem.
  • The British attacked New Orleans in hopes of cutting off Americans from the Mississippi. In response to this James Madison sent Andrew Jackson to lead American forces. The Americans won with 2000 British casualties and only 71 American casualties.
  • Fire!
  • The war had some effects on the U.S., such as American heroes who arose. Andrew Jackson and Commodore Perry are two examples. Also, the war weakened the Native American's resistance towards westward expansion. One major effect was that U.S. manufacturing grew.
