The War Of 1812
Transcript of The War Of 1812
June 18, 1812 the war of 1812 was declared by President James Madison
A letter was sent by President Madison on reasons why the war should be approved
The MAIN cause of the war was that the United States wanted free and open trade with BOTH Great Britain and France, but the British did not want the Americans to be neutral against their enemy
The Americans believed that the British still was not treating it as an independent country, and was giving the native Americans with guns to attack American settlers
The British was impressing American sailors into the British navy and was using them in the Napoleonic wars
The Americans were not very happy with the British navy was capturing some of their sailors

The Aboriginals believed that the land was never theirs to own
when the French and the British came they were willing to let them use their land and "sold" it to them.
But Tecumseh believed that even though the land is not theirs they should not have any right to give it to others.
Tecumseh took part in the war of 1812 with the British Colonies as allies not subjects.
He was not fond of the British but because the Americans were driving them out of their home land.
Tecumseh sadly died near Moraviantown on 5th of October 1813 during the battles of Thames.
Tecumseh and his tribe took along side the British Colonies
