The War Of 1812!!!!!
By: Bryce Ditslear
Causes of the war
Another major cause was the issues with Native Americans and the need for expansion.We wanted to move west, but the British were convincing the Native Americans that they should fight back.The British supplied them with guns and ammunition. Problems also arose when the U.S. wanted to take British controlled Canada.
Finally, Madison had to ask to declare war when a group of radicals known as War Hawks pushed for war. This group was made up of some really powerful people including; Henry Clay, Daniel Webster, and John C. Calhoun.
With all of these issues, James Madison was forced to declare war on Britain.
effects of the war
The war also weakened the Native American resistance. Because of this, western expansion was a lot easier. More people would be traveling west making the U.S. double in size.
Finally, the U.S. manufacturing grew tremendously. This growth would help the nations economics and give The U.S. the ability to grow into an extremely powerful nation.
