War of 1812

Written by Murphy Studious

Our country is falling apart

Great Britain and France are having a war and putting our country in the middle of this mess! Neither country wants the other country to trade with us. But France offered us a very good deal and only 15 million to double our country's size. Were calling it the Louisiana purchase.

Dolly Madison and the war

Dolly Madison was a tremendous help in the war. She is the wife of James Madison. She helped James get elected to be president. When the British came in, Dolly refused to leave the white house without taking a few valuables including a precious painting of George Washington. She also made the expression the first lady for how important she is.
