The War of 1812
THE WAR OF HUMILIATION AND PRIDE
The War of 1812 was one of the most important wars for the young nation of the United States of America. With the newborn nation struggling to become a sovereign powerhouse of a nation, the American citizens needed a reason to be proud to be an American like they once were standing up against Great Britain as they imposed continuous taxes to keep the Colonies down. This inspiration was prompted by the War of 1812. With the used-to-be Motherland of Great Britain attacking the used-to-be Colonies once again, the newly independent nation struggled to gain dominance in the war. As Great Britain moved on to the nations capital and burning down the White House, America was nearing defeat. It was at the Battle of Baltimore when the tides turned, and the U.S were able to defeat and halt the advancement of England. At this very battle, Patriotism was given a major improvement by the creation of the nation's national Anthem, The Star Spangled Banner. It was here on that Americans had increased morality and used this to defend the nation from the rest of the English Invaders.
