Outnumbered in ships, munitions, men, supplies and funding, our militia joined with the army and stood toe-to-toe with the British, and twice prevailed. The war was considered to be the ‘Second War of American Independence’, and it all certainly was. Surrounding nations were aghast at the audacity of America, and even more so with their triumph. Because of the war from 1812-1815, the United States of America had earned a position – however small – of power, influence, and respect in the realm of the world. The war strengthened our country, which ultimately led to our great nation today.
Under Peter's rule, Russia became a great European nation. In 1721, he proclaimed Russia an Empire and was accorded the title of Emperor of All Russia, Great Father of the Fatherland and "the Great." Some of his accomplishments are during the Great Northern War with Sweden, which lasted for nearly his entire reign. Russia eventually won the war with the signing of the Treaty of Nystadt in 1721. Although Russia had really won the war in 1709 at the battle of Poltava, Sweden continued to fight because of support from France and Britain.
They view the United State’s relationship with England as a weakness and urged the United States to get rid of the British in the western American territory. This new generation of politicians were called the War Hawks. The War Hawks constantly pressured Madison to declare war on the British and in June of 1812 Madison caved. The United States was fighting to ensure their Atlantic trade, to get the British out of US territory, and to clear out the Indians. Despite the British were winning the war The Treaty of Ghent was signed on Christmas Eve of 1814.
France and England had been fighting off and on since 1066. In the seventeenth century that fighting had extended to their colonies as well, and in the eighteenth century it would escalate even more. As the century progressed their rivalry extended beyond America to India, where the two European powers fought for control of the Indian subcontinent. The final conflict, known as the Seven Years' War (1756-63) in Europe, and the French and Indian War in North America. Britain emerged victorious everywhere, winning some of the greatest military victories of her history, and claimed the rewards of those victories.
With his great knowledge on foreign affairs, George knew what he was doing in his decisive action to invade the American colonies. During his reign, England became the richest nation in on Earth. Trading with America increased after the war and the two nations developed good relations. The Industrial Revolution helped further Great Britain’s trade with numerous nations around the globe. He had every right to tax and fight against his American colonies.
The French and Indian Wars' Impact on America At the peak of Britain's prominence, it was said that the sun never sets on the British Empire. Many were enthralled under its wing of mighty protection and dare a country stand up to Britain and face the consequences. In 1755 the last of the great conflicts between the Britain and France broke out. Although initially proving its superiority, one of the main facets of the British Empire headed for a major transformation. So that is why I say the very of the British triumph over France in the French and Indian War opened the door to the American Revolution.
In 1815 The Battle of New Orleans was fought, became the largest battle of the war of 1812, and was won by Andrew Jackson. From that time he was recognized as a national hero for winning such a huge war, even though the Treaty of Ghent was the armistice which had ended the War of 1812, and was signed earlier than when The Battle of New Orleans occurred. The Product of The War of 1812 was nationalism. “America may not have fought the war as one nation, but it emerged as one nation.” (“Nascent Nationalism”). American art and literature had developed and proceeded to show that nationalism began.
After the Revolutionary War the thirteen colonies gained freedom from Great Britain. Being that Britain had one of the most well renown Naval fleets of its era, this deemed to be a massive accomplishment for the up rise of the new independent free country that we call the United States of America. Soon after the war of freedom, war set fire internally through
This is through telling the reader that the founders won the war through luck, intellect and perseverance. He also tells of how the US is the longest surviving republic in the world. He also tells of how the revolutionary war was in different perspectives. An example was some of the founders thought America can unify and become an economic power while others just wanted to secede from England. He then talks about 1787 and how the American Constitution was made and then about how George Washington formed a new country under his leadership.
Daughan’s principle is crediting the efforts of the U.S. Navy in the battles at Lake Champlain and the high seas, which never received as much merit as the Battle of New Orleans. The War of 1812 left us with a renewed sense of patriotism, we had defeated the most powerful Army in the World. The U.S. Navy commanded respect from the European powers and ensured a healthy trading relationship with Great Britain in the future. The battles fought at the Great Lakes, Baltimore, New Orleans and the high seas were nothing short of heroic. President Madison’s post war policies have also shaped this nation’s position on foreign policy, which we still have today.
