Main Category for the War of 1812

This is the war where an infant United States of America stood up to the greatest naval power in the world, Great Britain!

Restriction of U.S trade by Great Britain along with the Royal Navy’s impressment of American seamen combined with America’s desire to expand its territory.

This is the one and only time, in USAs history, the nation’s capital, Washington, D.C., was captured and burned in August 1814. The new nation suffered costly defeats at the hands of British, Canadian and Native American troops during the course of the War of 1812.

American military troops repulsed the British invasions in New York, Baltimore and New Orleans. These successes boosted the national confidence resulting in a new spirit of patriotism.

The Treaty of Ghent, ratified on 17 February 1815, ended the war. In spite of the unresolved issues, some still going on today, many in the United States celebrated the War of 1812 as a “second war of independence,” beginning an era of partisan agreement and national pride.

Honor is to be rendered to those that served their respective nations regardless of positions taken during the war. Each military member was called upon by their nation and fought with bravery and deserves to be remembered for the sacrifice each one experienced. Rest in Peace:
