About the War of 1812

Since 1803 the English Navy been capturing United States ships illegally and not returning the goods or the ships. Then the English forced the captured US navy men to serve against their will in the British navy. Because of these continued, hostile acts on June 18, 1812, then American president James Madison declared war on England. This declaration of war and the following years to 1815 are known in American history as The War of 1812.

In 1814 Britain turned it’s full military attention to defeating the Americans on their own soil. Large numbers of British troops landed in Maryland and proceeded south to Washington, D.C. The English achieved victory there by burning the majority of the Capitol City to the ground. But the War of 1812 was not over. On September 13, 1814 the English bombarded a fort in Baltimore Maryland for 25 hours. But the following morning, United states soldiers hoisted a shredded American flag above the fort to show the British they were not defeated. The sight of the shredded flag inspired an American named Francis Scott Key to write a poem titled “The Star-Spangled Banner.” Set to music, “The Star Spangled Banner” became the United States National Anthem.

A treaty between the United States and England was signed in February of 1815. The United States had fought it’s “Second American Revolution” and had remained a sovereign nation.
