How many people were killed over all?
America had 2,260 deaths and 4,505 wounded and Britain had about 5,000 casualties.

When did the war start and when did it end?
The war of 1812 started in 1812 and ended in 1814 December 24th but a battle was still fought in New Orleans because no one knew that the peace treaty was signed at the time because mail was so slow back then.

What was the last battle of the war?
The last battle of the civil war was the battle of New Orleans. The Battle of New Orleans was a great American victory, led by Andrew Jackson the Americans had only about 26 casualties and the British had thousands more. What made this battle ironic was that the battle was fought after the peace treaty was signed. No one new that the war was over because the mail system was so slow so the war went on even though it was over.

Who do you think had the better advantages in the war and why?
I think that the British had the better advantages besides being the away team in the war. The British were the most powerful country at the time so they enough ships in their navy to make a blockade around the United States to stop trade so that the United States cannot trade and boost their country. The British also had many reinforcements, more men and more gunpowder and technology to defeat are small growing country.

Who were the war heros in the war?
· Sir Isaac Brock – Was a leader of the British army including natives, Canadians and took on 2,000 American forces.
· Tecumseh- Was a leader of the native army siding with the British and fought to the death defending his home land.
· Andrew Jackson-Was the leader of the last battle of the war “The Battle of New Orleans” thousands of the British army died but only less than 30 people died that were Americans.


Why did the War of 1812 start?
The War of 1812 started because of America and Great Britain’s relationships started to get complicated. The British started impressing American citizens on trading ships and making them join their army. Also the British were supplying the hostile native Americans with weapons and aid. Also some of the people in America wanted to capture Canada which was owned by the British.

Andrew,

I like your picture but I think you should add more. Your picture is a little hard to read so you should use more simple pictures. It would also be nice if you added more details about the time period and about why the War of 1812 took place. You should also site your sources. Otherwise, the page looks great.
~Nicole Floyd-Stancil~
Hannah Diehl-2/4/10: You have very good information so far and two very good graphics. I like how your notes are in the question-answer form. I think that you should continue to come up with new questions to answer and find more sources in order to add even more information to the notes to have already written. Also, you should add more graphics. Your wiki is coming along nicely, but you should keep researching it and adding to it to make it more in depth and rich in information.

Hannah Diehl- So far your page looks very nice and you have quite a bit of information and many focus questions answered. As I have said before, you have two very nice graphics, and more would probably add to your page nicely. I think that you should really go into as much detail answering each question as possible. For example, on your focus question asking about the last battle of the war, you should describe in detail, such as where it was, more specific then New Orleans, who was involved, and why there we so many British casualties rather tan American casualties. You could also add how it made Andrew Jackson a war hero, which later helped him become president. I think it would be good to add more on the people involved in the war and the politics that lead up to the war. You could name some of the American and British generals, and list some of the reasons that Americans wanted to go to war in the first place. You could also add how the war came to an end and the treaty that was made. You could also research Native American involvement in the war. I think what you have is good, and you have a large topic that you can get a lot of information about. Finally, be sure to site your sources, and if that is you only source, start looking for more sources to further you research, including resource that are not websites. Overall, you project is nice.

Andrew,
i think you have really good points but you could add more pictures. i strugled reading the map that you put on here so it would be a good idea if you put a more legiable picture on there.
