  • Democratic-Republican
  • In 1809, Democratic-Republican James Madison was sworn into office as the fourth president of the United States. In 1812, Madison asked Congress to approve a war with Britain due to various reasons.
  • Francis Scott Key and the Bombardment of Fort McHenry
  • Madison felt the need to declare war against Britain because of impressment of U.S sailors and the resistance of Native Americans in the Northwest Territory. England soon announced that they would stop attacking American ships and kidnapping sailors, but it was too late. Congress had declared war. Meanwhile, in the Northwest Territory, armed by the British, Native Americans formed alliances with England in Canada. The Native Americans were preparing to fight the Americans for their land.
  • Andrew Jackson: War Hero
  • New Orleans is OURS!
  • CAUSES for WAR
  • Fine, it's all yours...now, let's get out of here!
  • The battles in the Northwest Territory were fought by the British and American navies. The U.S Navy, lead by Oliver Hazard Perry, battled against the British for two hours until Perry's ship was sunk. Determined, he and some other men continued to fight from a rowboat and defeated the British fleet. On land, British ground troops began to retreat back into Canada, were followed by U.S General William Henry Harrison and his troops, and were defeated in the Battle of Thames.
  • Effects of the War
  • Because England had defeated Napoleon, (France) the British now put all their effort towards defeating the U.S They blockaded the entire east and southern coasts of the United States, and eventually burned down the White House. Around the same time, the bombardment of Fort McHenry was taking place in Baltimore, Maryland. A man named Francis Scott Key observed tis battle and how the Americans stopped a British invasion. Watching the bombs burst in the air, Key wrote our National Anthem, "The Star Spangled Banner."
  • I, Francis Scott Key wrote the National Anthem!
  • Even though the Treaty of Ghent had been signed and ended the war, news hadn't reached the United States from Europe, and conflict between the British and Americans still remained in the U.S. In 1815, the British began to attack New Orleans to cut use of the Mississippi River from the Americans. President Madison sent Andrew Jackson to lead the troops to defend the port of New Orleans. Jackosn and his troops successfully defeated the British and protected their port of New Orleans with only 71 American casualties.
  • The War of 1812 increased patriotism in Americans, and citizens respected war heros such as Andrew Jackson, Harrison, and Perry. Another effect of the war was the fact that Native Americans were no longer a threat in the west--they had been defeated. The third effect of the war was the start to manufacturing. During the war, the U.S had no access to their ports, and they started to maufacture and make things on their own. They continued to do so after the war, which opened up the path towards the Industrial Revolution.
