This is a 60 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on The United states & Minor Wars - The war of 1812. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
The War of 1812 lasted two-and-a-half years, between the United States and Great Britain and Ireland its North American colonies and its American Indian allies. Seen by the United States and Canada as a war in its own right, it is frequently seen in Europe as a theatre of the Napoleonic Wars, as it was caused by issues related to that war. The war resolved many issues which remained from the American Revolutionary War but involved no boundary changes.
The presentation covers the following:
1803-1812: British impress approximately 10,000 Americans forcing them to work on British ships. The British blockade France, American ships are caught in the middle and the British seize approximately 1000 US ships.
