Storyboard Text

  • In 1808, democratic republican James Madison was elected as the president of the United States. He would go on to be the first president to declare war on a foreign country.
  • The Election
  • During this time British sailors would imprison American sailors and force them the serve in the British navy. This was called impressment. It was the main reason James Madison declared war on Britain.
  • You can't do this!
  • Don't forget the guns for the savages! We need them to kill some filthy Americans!
  • Impressment and Native American Hostility
  • You are hereby a sailor of the British navy and you will be punished if you do not comply!
  • After James Madison became aware of the British presence in the Great Lakes, and infuriated with impressment, he decided to declare war on Britain, and start the War of 1812.
  • The battle has already begun! We will defeat the red coats and reclaim what is ours!
  • Sir the Great Lakes are under attack by the British and they are using Canada to stage more! What are we to do?!
  • The Decision Concerning the Great Lakes
  • On September 12, 1814, the British navy laid siege to fort McHenry for 3 days but the Americans were not defeated. This inspired Francis Scott Key to write the Star Spangled Banner which became our national anthem.
  • My god....And the rockets red glare.....The bombs bursting in air....
  • The Siege
  • In January of 1815, Andrew Jackson commanded and won the Battle of New Orleans for the Americans and was considered a major war hero. American casualties were 240 while British losses were 2,286.
  • Thank You!
  • A War Hero Emerges
  • After the War of 1812 America was shoved into the Industrial Revolution because Britain had blockaded America and prevented trade. Britain had unknowingly just made America a whole lot stronger.
  • The Industrial Revolution
  • Let's make our own goods! We don't need Britain!
