Using the link provided under Term 2 “Assignments” with the same name, look over the presentation:
1) Who won the War of 1812? Explain.
- United States
1) It first seemed that the British were going to win the war of 1812. When the Americans were trying to invade Canada, they were not prepared for the invasions of Detroit. Native Americans aided the British because they did not wanted to lose the rights for their own land. The members of the US navy were inexperienced and outnumbered.A blockade was established which prevented the ships of the Americans from leaving their ports. The British kater invaded Washington and burned The buildings within. Though they were losing the war,Americans still had hope. The Americans became victorious in the Battle of New Orleans. Britain and America later became allies and signed a treaty.
2) How did the War of 1812 foster feelings of nationalism?
After losing the Battle at Fort McHenry, all seemed lost for the Americans.It was not, an American lawyer, Francis Scott Key, noticed an American flag flying over Fort McHenry after the battle.Inspired by that flag, Key wrote the song “Star Spangled Banner”. The song unleashed the nationalism of the Americans and fostered their feelings. Inspired to fight for and honour their country, Americans were victorious over the British at The Battle of New Orleans, leaving them an independent nation with freedom.
