Canada – stupid place. 32. Battle of Thames – after the British are defeated on Lake Erie, they retreat into Canada, where William Harrison catches them and defeats them again (kills Tecumseh) 33. Battle of Plattsburgh – the British send 14000 soldiers to NY to seize the city and make the northeast secede, but Tom Macdonough leads the US naval forces and defeats them 34. Battle of Lake Erie – Oliver Hazard Perry leads the US fleet, and says “We have met the enemy, and they are ours”. This is the first US victory in the war. 35. Battle of Fort McHenry – after the burn D.C., the British move to Baltimore, where the US puts up heavy resistance at Fort McHenry and halt the British. Francis Scott Key writes the Star- Spangled Banner 36. Washington D.C. burns – British forces meet at the Potomac river, march to D.C., burn down D.C., and leave. 37. Madison runs – Madison literally runs. Washington D.C. is burning, he’s not gonna just chill there. 38. Hartford Convention – federalists die out. At the convention, federalists come up with some proposals to limit Democratic-Republican power, they send them to Congress and they’re all denied, so the Federalist Party withers away. 39. Battle of New Orleans – Andrew Jackson leads this battle, defeating the Creek Indians at Horseshoe bend, and the British and Pensacola. Jackson guesses the British are going for New Orleans, guesses right, and the British launch 2 attacks, and were defeated pretty badly. Andrew Jackson becomes a War Hero, and the battle was actually signed 2 weeks after the Treaty of Ghent. 40. Treaty of Ghent – signed in Belgium, all land acquired is returned to its original owner, war ends in a draw, but mentions nothing about the seas or the Native Americans. 41. Us Slogans – before – “On to Canada” after – “Not one inch of territory ceded or lost” 42. James Monroe – succeeds Madison. His presidency is called the “era of good feelings” 43. Nationalism – after the war of 1812, the Americans feel really good, have pride in their country, and they begin to call themselves “Americans” 44. American System – developed by Henry Clay to strengthen the US. Calls for a strong banking system to help the NE, protective tariff to help the NE, internal improvement to help the south and west by giving money to help build roads and transportation in the US. 45.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
