Storyboard Text

  • President James Madison, 4th president of the United States, viewed the British as being hostile towards us for impressing our U.S. sailors. President James Madison felt that we had no choice but to go to war with Britain. He led us in the War of 1812.
  • James Madison as President and his views on war with Britain
  • We have no choice but to go to war with Britain for impressing our sailors and continuing to ignore our attempts at peace.
  • There were many causes of the War of 1812. The first cause of the War of 1812 was Native American death. Tecumseh, a Native American chief in the Northwest Territory, allied with the British in Canada to fight the Americans. The second cause of the war was interference with shipping by the British. And, the third cause of the war was that the British were impressing American sailors and attacking US ships.
  • Causes of the War of 1812
  • We shall fight the Americans for you.
  • Why are you interfering with our trade, British?
  • Why are you impressing me you British hooligan?
  • Phase 1 was between 1812 and 1814 in which the war was primarily fought by our Navy against the British. Oliver Hazard Perry was in charge of the U.S. Navy in Lake Eerie, in which Commodore Perry and the British fought for two hours until Perry's ship sunk. But, Perry went in a rowboat and destroyed the British ships. The British retreated back to Canada and General William Henry Harrison defeated them at the Battle of Thames, which guaranteed that the British were no longer a threat in the Northwest.
  • Darn you Oliver Hazard Perry and you pesky Americans!
  • Phase 1- Battles in the Great Lakes/Canada
  • You will be defeated by William Henry Harris at the Battle of Thames, and you will no longer be a threat in the Northwest.
  • Phase 2 was in 1814 after the British defeated Napoleon, and then put all of their energy and military into fighting the British. The British blockaded the coast, marched to Washington D.C. and set the White House and President's Mansion on fire. Also, Francis Scott Key watched the bombardment of Fort McHenry in Baltimore, Maryland and saw how the Americans stopped the British from invading. While watching the British and Americans fight one another he wrote, "The Star Spangled Banner," which is now our national anthem.
  • Phase 2- Francis Scott Key and the Bombardment of Fort McHenry
  • I shall write, "The Star Spangled Banner."
  • The British attacked New Orleans to cut of American use of the Mississippi River for trade. This marked the beginning of the third phase of the War of 1812. James Madison sent Andrew Jackson to comand our American forces in 1815. Andrew Jackson became a war hero and became the seventh president of the U.S. and helped greatly in the Battle of Orleans. There were 71 American casualties and 2,000 British casualties at the Battle of New Orleans. The Treaty of Ghent finally ended the War of 1812.
  • Phase 3- Andrew Jackson as a war hero and the Battle of New Orleans
  • New Orleans
  • I am Andrew Jackson and I won't let you do that !
  • Attack!
  • The War of 1812 and its three phases led to the Industrial Revolution in three different ways. First, it increased American Patriotism and recognized Andrew Jackson, William Henry, and Commodore Perry as American war heroes. Second, it weakened the Native American resistance to westward settlement. Lastly, U.S. manufacturing grew rapidly and began the Industrial Revolution.
