Storyboard Text

  • James Madison is President
  • Hello! I'm President James Madison.
  • Issues with Native Americans and Impressment
  • The British MUST stop impressing american sailors! They have taken a thousand ships and thousands of sailors! We must go to war!
  • Darn the British! They keep on supplying the Natives with weapons.This is a good enough cause to go to war.
  • Naval Battles and Battle of Thames
  • Tecuhmsen is dead! We no longer have to worry about indian attacks.
  • He was the 4th president of the United States. He was president from 1808-1816 and he strongly encouraged congress to declare war on Great Britain causing the war of 1812.
  • Francis Scott Key and the Bombardment of Fort McHenry
  • The two main causes of the war was that the British were impressing (forcing someone into military service) American Sailors and taking their ships. Also, the British supplied Natives with weapons which they use to kill American settlers in the North West Territory. The Americans were ready to go to war.
  • Andrew Jackson and the Battle of New Orleans
  • Man that Andrew Jackson is so cool! He is my hero!
  • Most of the war took place on the Great Lakes. Oliver Hazard Perry took control of the navy in lake Eerie. At the Battle of Thames General William Henry Harrison defeated the British, and Native American/British ally Native american Tecuhmsen.
  • Effects of the War
  • Good Idea!
  • The British can't supply us with manufactured goods any more......WE SHOULD MAKE OUR OWN!!!!!
  • Francis Scott Key was being held as a prisoner on a British ship while the British bombed Fort McHenry. The Americans were successful in defending the fort. In the action of the battle, Francis Scott key was inspired to write the 'Star Spangled Banner' by the waving American Flag towering over the fort.
  • Watching the American Flag wave over Fort McHenry was beautiful. I have an idea.....
  • The Battle of New Orleans was unnecessary, this is so because the Treaty of Ghent which ended all fighting was signed two weeks earlier. Without knowing this the outnumbered Americans led by Andrew Jackson defeated the British with only 71 casualties while the British lost 2000 men. This made Andrew Jackson a War hero.
  • Yeah he's pretty cool.
  • There were a few effects from the war. The war forced Americans to manufacture their own goods, this led to the Industrial Revolution. Native American resistance stopped. America gained power and respect from the world. A feeling of Nationalism swept across the nation, but Federalists in New England met in secret to discuss secession. This was considered treason and destroyed the Federalist party.
