The treaty was ratified this day by President James Madison and later on the very next day. The Peace Commission that represented the United States was Albert Gallatin, Henry Clay, John Quincy Adams, and John Holmes. After signing the treaty though the Americans had to put aside their ideas for war in order to expand their land.
The treaty was signed on December 25, 1814 in Ghent, Belgium. It ended the War of the United States and United Kingdom. Even though there was a treaty the war still continued a couple of weeks. Even though there are terms of the treaty the war wasn't exactly over because the United Kingdom and the U.S had to exchange their ratifications and then the treaty has to be proclaimed. The Senate soon made the decision out of nowhere that they wanted a Ratification on February 16, 1815.
There were many battles for New Orleans. Soldier, sailor, militia, Indians, and African Americans finally defeated Britain's finniest troops. So, the victory in the Golf forced the British to realize that the U.S claimed Louisiana.
New England Federalists met at the Hartford, Conn on the early month part of December in order to call for states rights. This war wasn't really a popular in New England though. Overall there were 26 delegates from Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, and Vermont. Each delegate gave ideas for the constitutional amendments that would challenge something like what happened to President James Madison's military despotism and forced him to resign. In time the Hartford delegation arrived in Washington in order to tell them their ideas when the War of 1812 was to be over. When The Treaty of Ghent was already signed by James Madison and Gen. Along with Andrew Jackson's victory in New Orleans. The capital said "Their position," said by a French dipolmat also, "that was awkward, embarrassing, and lent itself to cruel ridicule," and after the delegations heard this they had to slowly let go of their recommendations or ideas.
The fort is very famous because of the war of 1812. This is the day that the British attacked. For about 25 hours they bombarded Fort McHenry and because of the Forts defenders Baltimore was saved. Later on the force against the British inspired a 35 year old poet laqyer by Frances Scott Key Banner to write a poem called The Star-Spangled Banner." And the poem became our national anthem. The Star-Spangled Banner By Scott Key Banner Oh, say can you see, by the dawn's early light, What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming? Whose broad stripes and bright stars, through the perilous fight, O'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming? And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air, Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there. O say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?
The day when the British faced the Americans on the rode of Brandenburg and won. So when the Americans were defeated the way to the white house was wide open unprotected. And when the British reached the white house they burned it down, along with the capital. But, just in time before both buildings were almost burned down completely there was a large rain storm.
There was war during the year f 1812 when the Creeks who are a Native American tribe sided with the British they were less of a threat to the tribal lands. There were many battle against the farms and settlements with many lives gone. They reached to a point that the Creek War soon had high bad possibilities by August 1813. So, the Fort Mims which is a small Fort in the northern part of Mobile was invaded by warriors from the leader of Red Eagle. Red Eagle didn't want them to invade the Fort and kill so many. By, the end his warriors killed 500 people from all ages. Andrew Jackson found out about the event in Nashville. He soon was able to raised an army of Tennessee force of 2000 men and Creek, Cherokee warriors. During the beginning of fall of 1813 Jackson and his poorly trained soldiers went to engage the battle with Red Eagle's warriors. But, before the battle Jackson even burned some people alive in order to show his warriors that were untrustworthy. The War happened in the Upper Creek village on a horshoe- shaped bend in the Tallapoosa River. After his war Jackson's army killed 550 while Jackson only lost 49 men.
The day when the general William Harrison sended troops against the British soldiers and Indians. The Battle took place in Ontario Canada. And William Harrison's army won the battle. While the British fled and surrendered. The Indian leader Tecumseh got scared and freaked out because of the battle and surrendered. The battle of Thames is the most important battle in the year of 1812 in the American Northwest.
During this time in September Oliver controls Lake Erie and if they didn't control the lake then they wouldn't have much food supplies. And with no more money to pay the army they were outnumbered. By they I mean those that lived with Oliver Peary in Lake Erie. Even though Oliver and the others were outnumbered they risked everything in the battle against the American fleets. Then later on in September 9 the British tried to take over Lake Erie's supply line. And when the British met Peary there were almost 4 hours of cannon fire in the battle. Peary and his force defeated the British and then he sat down and wrote a famous qoute. "We have met the enemy and they are ours." -Oliver Hazard Peary
The battle lasted for one hour and by the end of the war the Constitution won. The Constitution army was actually a group of people, And the Guierrerie's captain was named James R. Dacres. The Guierrerie's captain was named Jams R. Dacres. The Guierrerie had a disadvantage on the ships, people, and everything they had, but they still fought. Later on, on August 30 the Constitution went to Boston with her prisoners.
The war was declared as a results of many battle with Great Britain. The Central Dispute surrounded the impressments of American soldiers of the British. The British attacked the U.S and nearly caused a war 2 years before the year of 1812. Plus, the battles continues in the northwest territory in the border of Canada. The British also gave Native Americans weapons in order to attack the southern part of the U.S.
