What was the War's significance on the development of national identity? What was the War of 1812? The War of 1812
(Hart) Initially, the France and British were involved. The "New World" got involved in it because the British started 'impressing' the Americans. This war was also called the "Second Years War" because America and other countries recognized their independence. The Causes of the War of 1812
(Hart) Economic sanctions on trade,taken by the British and the French against the US.
Americans were very mad at Great Britain because they kept impressing them.
Jefferson implicated embargoes on the British, but it hurt the Americans way more than the British, so the Americans got very angry, and declared war with the British. Significance on the development of national identity. National Identity
(Crocker) An analysis of the causes of the War of 1812 shows the importance of maintaining military capabilities that are compatible with our national goals.It led many Americans to believe that they were part of the United States and apart of some state that didn't believe in unity.
Historical significance of the war in 1812 was that it helped the people of America have a strong nationalism for their country, despite the second failed American attempt to forcibly annex the territory known as Canada . National Identity
(Hawkins) The war helped shape national identity by showing Americans that they needed greater infrastructure, a better and bigger army with better equipment. The war was a sign for another national bank(the other having been shutdown). Protective taxes were put in place to help fund internal projects/improvements, the new military, and a newly upgraded industry. The people realized that manufacturing and the like needed to grow after the failed embargo.
