The War of 1812
Whos fault was it?
HMS Leopard fired at the U.S.S. Chesapeake
The HMS Leopard attacked the U.S.S. Chesapeake which caused some chaos between Britian and America. The U.S. felt threatened about the attack, while Britian felt over confident about the attack.
Ships continue to get attacked
When American ships kept getting attacked, Thomas Jefferson had enough. So he cut all the trade between Britian and America. The British were not happy with that. The Americans felt good that the British werent happy with the trade cut.
James Madison did not like Britian 1 bit. He wanted to start war with them because of the ship attack. He tried his very best to persuade everybody to start war between the 2 countries.
Britian starts to call Americans savages for wanting to start war. The British did not want to have war with America. But Britian already had started the war by attacking the U.S.S. Chesapeake.
