war of 1812
Transcript of war of 1812
The United States declared war on june 1st 1812.
The reasons for this included trade restrictions , forcing American merchant sailors to join the Royal Navy, and The British supporting Indian tribes who were against American expansion. These are only a few reasons why the war started. The Americans were pretty much jealous of the British.
The British and the Americans were at war with each other.
Battle of Lake Erie
Another American victory was at The Battle of Lake Erie where the Americans were victorious against the British Canadians. Their victory put the entire Northwest Territories under the control of the USA in 1813. The battle of Lake Erie was then followed by The Battle of the Thames just a month after where the Americans were also victorious at.

War Of 1812 Basic Summary
Some American Victorys
One American victory in the War of 1812 was when Governor William Henry Harrison was victorious at The Battle of Tippecanoe in the fall of 1811.
Hi victory convinced many Native Americans (including Tecumseh) to get support from the british or else even more of their claimed land would be captured/taken.
Capture at Fort Detroit
The capture of Fort Detroit was a very impressive one. The British and Native Americans, led by General Brock and Shawnee Chief Tecumseh, headed up to fort Detroit where General Hull (American) was. They did not have all that big of an army compared to Hull's but that did not stop them. Both Tecumseh and Brock were very smart. Brock instructed his troops to make tons of noise and Tecumseh instructed his troops to walk around the Fort 3 times to make General Hull think they had a huge Army much bigger than his. Hull was so scared that he surrendered even before battle.
This Was the British Response
sum it up,
said yes and
that they would fight
Some small victories
One of the victories for the British was on August, 1814 when the British and Native Americans captured and burned the USA's nation capital, Washington DC.
There really was no clear winner of the War of 1812. Both nations were affected pretty much equally.
The War of 1812 ended on December 24th (Christmas Eve!), 1814. The British and americans both signed The Treaty Of Peace And Amity.
