The war of 1812
By Jamie Daughters
What were some causes of the war?
Another great cause of the war was Americans wanting more land. Britain owned all of the land west of where America was, but they pushed out onto the land anyways. Native Americans were angered by the Americans kicking them out of the land they were living in so they allied with British to take back ´their´ land. Soon enough Americans were having trouble with both Britain and Native Americans.
War Hawks were one of the biggest cause of the war. War hawks were men who supported and pushed for the war of 1812. Henry Clay was one of the war hawks and he tried to help America with the 'American System' but despite his good intentions, it never went into effect.
What were Effects of the war of 1812?
One effect was that the war weekend the Native's resistance. The American's had beat the Native's and force them out of the land they were living in so the natives began to stop resisting.
Another effect is that the U.S. manufacturing grew. They could finally earn money more easily and didn't have such a bad economy. people started making more products but didn't have enough demand because they couldn't trade with and European countries.
After the war, the American's had finally won something. this had boosted their patriotism and people became more loyal to their country. many different countries recognized America's patriotism and it made them proud.
