this blog is about the American perspective on the war of 1812. in class we learn about how during the war of 1812 how we "Canada" needed to win and how much better we are then them. it seems as we are taught that we were right but the Americans were just doing the same, trying to find a trading route, and land. schools in America are probably taught about how they were right.
American traders wanted to trade but had problems with Britain so to solve there problems they were going to fight the closest thing, which being Canada. America lost they fight. Britain was also fighting the Napoleonic wars, while also battling with the Americans in the new world. the Americans weren't just fighting British since they wanted land they were fighting the First Nations as well. remember when i said Americans are taught different they are taught they fought with British not Canada. but makes sense because Canada was mostly British and First nations. they are also taught it was fought on American soil. but both countries teach that they were they won and that they were right.
