Show Notes

America has a long and expansive history of war, but none is as often forgotten or is as pointless as the War of 1812. In this episode, Nat talks about America’s first declared war that involved the kidnapping of American sailors, the capture of our nation’s capital by Canadian and British forces and the destruction of the White House.

0:00:02.280,0:00:08.160
episode of how did we not know that my

0:00:04.589,0:00:10.349
name is Jack I’m Nana and today and that

0:00:08.160,0:00:13.679
is going to talk about a very important

0:00:10.349,0:00:15.120
war that happened yeah yeah today I’m

0:00:13.679,0:00:20.070
going to be talking about the war of

0:00:15.120,0:00:22.380
1812 super city so before I get into it

0:00:20.070,0:00:26.119
Jack what do you know about the war of

0:00:22.380,0:00:29.609
1812 nothing I know it was 200 years ago

0:00:26.119,0:00:33.360
so the while ago I don’t even was it a

0:00:29.609,0:00:39.930
US war yeah yeah so we fought and it was

0:00:33.360,0:00:42.840
on US soil okay yeah so I so like did

0:00:39.930,0:00:46.620
not know a lot about war of 1812 I was

0:00:42.840,0:00:48.660
like oh it sounds super boring um like

0:00:46.620,0:00:50.730
okay if listeners have like realized we

0:00:48.660,0:00:54.000
don’t really talk about a lot of stuff

0:00:50.730,0:00:55.739
like in like the early 1800s like the

0:00:54.000,0:00:57.629
very beginning years of America like

0:00:55.739,0:01:00.239
that’s for a reason like personally I’m

0:00:57.629,0:01:02.579
not very interested in the topic but I

0:01:00.239,0:01:06.360
was like okay I know nothing about war

0:01:02.579,0:01:08.630
of 1812 so I should look into it um so

0:01:06.360,0:01:12.510
I’ll just like dive right into it so

0:01:08.630,0:01:14.159
basically in the year of 1812 America is

0:01:12.510,0:01:16.350
a really really young country right

0:01:14.159,0:01:20.970
likes I know in case you forgot we

0:01:16.350,0:01:23.909
gained our independence in 1776 and then

0:01:20.970,0:01:25.439
so Great Britain so there are there that

0:01:23.909,0:01:28.650
people were fighting in the war right at

0:01:25.439,0:01:30.509
this time Great Britain is really huge

0:01:28.650,0:01:33.810
and they’re the world’s greatest naval

0:01:30.509,0:01:35.880
power and even though we’re such a young

0:01:33.810,0:01:38.310
tiny country we still end up going to

0:01:35.880,0:01:41.100
war with them and so yeah so basically

0:01:38.310,0:01:44.850
war of 1812 is uh subversives Great

0:01:41.100,0:01:47.549
Britain um and so the causes of the war

0:01:44.850,0:01:49.470
you might be wondering why yeah I feel

0:01:47.549,0:01:53.700
like we just had the American Revolution

0:01:49.470,0:01:55.530
then to go into another war right like

0:01:53.700,0:01:58.140
we’re still recovering from the war of

0:01:55.530,0:02:00.960
independence and then also like we’re

0:01:58.140,0:02:02.939
still trying to establish ourselves as

0:02:00.960,0:02:04.619
like our sandwich our government and

0:02:02.939,0:02:06.869
establish ourselves as an independent

0:02:04.619,0:02:09.420
nation but we were still really pissed

0:02:06.869,0:02:12.530
at Great Britain and you’re so mad that

0:02:09.420,0:02:13.870
we decided that we should go to war so

0:02:12.530,0:02:17.349
there’s

0:02:13.870,0:02:19.870
really one like clear main cause for the

0:02:17.349,0:02:24.459
war but like historians have kind of

0:02:19.870,0:02:27.849
broken it down into three three overall

0:02:24.459,0:02:31.900
reasons so at the time Great Britain is

0:02:27.849,0:02:35.650
fighting France in the Napoleonic Wars

0:02:31.900,0:02:38.940
I also yeah we got a research Napoleon

0:02:35.650,0:02:42.370
because he’s a big guy and I don’t even

0:02:38.940,0:02:44.650
yeah I realize I never really took like

0:02:42.370,0:02:46.420
European history classes and I think

0:02:44.650,0:02:47.410
that’s like kind of problem you should

0:02:46.420,0:02:50.370
probably know this up

0:02:47.410,0:02:50.370
because it basically

0:02:51.250,0:02:57.310
no you’re good you say like I feel like

0:02:54.970,0:02:58.870
these wars like when I was looking into

0:02:57.310,0:03:00.520
the Napoleonic Wars I was like oh my

0:02:58.870,0:03:02.920
gosh how did I not know about this this

0:03:00.520,0:03:05.530
was such a huge deal and they were

0:03:02.920,0:03:07.240
fighting for so long yeah see I feel the

0:03:05.530,0:03:10.050
opposite way I feel like we learned a

0:03:07.240,0:03:12.130
lot more about European history than

0:03:10.050,0:03:14.590
anywhere else in the world and I know

0:03:12.130,0:03:16.480
there’s a lot going on in Asia probably

0:03:14.590,0:03:18.790
lots of things in South America and

0:03:16.480,0:03:21.580
Africa too and we just like but that’s

0:03:18.790,0:03:24.130
fairly we’re a dominant we won’t even

0:03:21.580,0:03:25.360
know I really completely agree with you

0:03:24.130,0:03:28.410
know I think you’re actually true I

0:03:25.360,0:03:30.490
think I just don’t remember a lot of

0:03:28.410,0:03:31.960
Guttenberg you hear me complain about

0:03:30.490,0:03:34.690
this all the time Gutenberg printing

0:03:31.960,0:03:36.490
press we sweat like half a year on the

0:03:34.690,0:03:39.400
Gutenberg printing press it’s pretty

0:03:36.490,0:03:41.500
self-explanatory okay he just made

0:03:39.400,0:03:43.750
little stencils and then printed books

0:03:41.500,0:03:45.640
that’s all the lesson had to be it was a

0:03:43.750,0:03:48.610
one-liner sentence and they stretched

0:03:45.640,0:03:50.950
that out for forever it’s like the most

0:03:48.610,0:03:53.550
influential piece of history I don’t

0:03:50.950,0:03:57.820
know you’re talking about

0:03:53.550,0:04:00.310
hey but but yeah so definitely skipped

0:03:57.820,0:04:03.550
over a war of 1812 at least in my

0:04:00.310,0:04:04.900
classes and so yeah so Great Britain and

0:04:03.550,0:04:08.380
France are fighting in the Napoleonic

0:04:04.900,0:04:10.420
Wars and so both these two countries are

0:04:08.380,0:04:13.209
trying to stop the other country from

0:04:10.420,0:04:14.290
trading with the u.s. so that so because

0:04:13.209,0:04:16.600
they don’t want the other country to

0:04:14.290,0:04:19.900
like benefit from trading yeah whatever

0:04:16.600,0:04:21.459
and so the US was super upset with Great

0:04:19.900,0:04:23.230
Britain for restricting their trade

0:04:21.459,0:04:25.120
because they’re like oh my gosh like we

0:04:23.230,0:04:25.630
just gained our independence from you

0:04:25.120,0:04:28.600
guys

0:04:25.630,0:04:31.090
you can’t like be telling us what we can

0:04:28.600,0:04:33.760
and can’t do so they were pretty Great

0:04:31.090,0:04:35.890
Britain for that also another crazy

0:04:33.760,0:04:39.910
thing that’s happening at this time so

0:04:35.890,0:04:41.830
they’re upset about the Royal Navy like

0:04:39.910,0:04:44.140
the Great Britain Great Britain’s Navy

0:04:41.830,0:04:46.570
their policy of impressment

0:04:44.140,0:04:49.540
of American sailors and basically like

0:04:46.570,0:04:53.230
impressment means is that Great Britain

0:04:49.540,0:04:55.720
would like they would attack your ships

0:04:53.230,0:04:58.510
and they call them in like kidnap the US

0:04:55.720,0:05:00.400
sailors on those ships bring them back

0:04:58.510,0:05:03.610
to Britain and be like okay now you have

0:05:00.400,0:05:04.780
to fight in our army and this because I

0:05:03.610,0:05:06.639
guess

0:05:04.780,0:05:08.500
there is a shortage of sailors during

0:05:06.639,0:05:10.630
this war it had been going on for so

0:05:08.500,0:05:12.580
long and so many people died so they’re

0:05:10.630,0:05:17.139
like oh we need new sailors so let’s

0:05:12.580,0:05:19.600
just kidnap them um and so yeah Great

0:05:17.139,0:05:20.889
Britain benefits a lot from this policy

0:05:19.600,0:05:22.150
because like not only are they getting

0:05:20.889,0:05:24.580
more sailors but they’re also

0:05:22.150,0:05:26.440
interfering with trade between the u.s.

0:05:24.580,0:05:29.590
and France by like attacking these ships

0:05:26.440,0:05:35.460
and everything and like yeah the u.s. is

0:05:29.590,0:05:37.960
like what the heck you literally and

0:05:35.460,0:05:39.940
members of Congress trying to use this

0:05:37.960,0:05:42.190
as like one of the really big reasons to

0:05:39.940,0:05:43.780
declare war in Britain publicly they’re

0:05:42.190,0:05:46.840
kind of like we can’t let them get away

0:05:43.780,0:05:48.850
with this we must fight and then like

0:05:46.840,0:05:52.060
the third and final reason is that

0:05:48.850,0:05:55.210
America was trying to expand its

0:05:52.060,0:05:57.460
territory so at the time Canada is a

0:05:55.210,0:06:00.419
British colony and so they’re like okay

0:05:57.460,0:06:03.040
we got our eyes set and Canada and so

0:06:00.419,0:06:05.500
you know war might if we win the war

0:06:03.040,0:06:08.290
maybe we’ll gain all of Canada as well

0:06:05.500,0:06:13.840
the United States wanted it like we were

0:06:08.290,0:06:15.610
like okay Oh huge country oh my gosh

0:06:13.840,0:06:18.130
that’s like all of North America it’s

0:06:15.610,0:06:20.560
just that is like that was like pretty

0:06:18.130,0:06:22.330
much the goal okay God like all these

0:06:20.560,0:06:25.750
presidents at the beginning like they

0:06:22.330,0:06:27.340
really had yeah that’s when I guess you

0:06:25.750,0:06:28.840
know times were simpler back then you

0:06:27.340,0:06:30.880
just wanted to gain more land also

0:06:28.840,0:06:34.030
question I don’t know I know you’ve

0:06:30.880,0:06:35.020
worked in Canada so I have no idea about

0:06:34.030,0:06:37.570
the history of Canada

0:06:35.020,0:06:39.580
I met one nice Canadian on a plane and

0:06:37.570,0:06:41.470
he said that the unifying factor of

0:06:39.580,0:06:44.919
Canadians was that they were American

0:06:41.470,0:06:47.800
yes thank you guys have a history surely

0:06:44.919,0:06:49.870
like dude okay this is completely for

0:06:47.800,0:06:52.690
catering I will get into how this

0:06:49.870,0:06:55.570
impacted the Canadian identity later at

0:06:52.690,0:06:57.580
the end but like literally I did not

0:06:55.570,0:06:59.470
like hear about this war until I went to

0:06:57.580,0:07:01.690
Canada and as soon as I stepped foot in

0:06:59.470,0:07:04.840
Canada so I was like working in Ottawa

0:07:01.690,0:07:06.490
right so it’s the capital um everyone is

0:07:04.840,0:07:07.990
talk about war of 1812 as soon as I was

0:07:06.490,0:07:11.770
brought up I was Americans they’re like

0:07:07.990,0:07:13.930
oh like throwback to that Oh Lord of

0:07:11.770,0:07:15.820
1812 well and they’re very proud of it

0:07:13.930,0:07:18.190
for like a lot of I will get into later

0:07:15.820,0:07:21.310
but yeah I was like oh my god

0:07:18.190,0:07:28.540
that’s hilarious throwback to 1812 y’all

0:07:21.310,0:07:30.700
remember that nobody’s like oh yeah for

0:07:28.540,0:07:33.160
sure I know everything

0:07:30.700,0:07:35.920
no way that’s totally a parallel because

0:07:33.160,0:07:38.560
I know okay I should probably talk to my

0:07:35.920,0:07:39.820
English friends but like for us right

0:07:38.560,0:07:41.890
the American Revolution is like

0:07:39.820,0:07:43.630
everything but for them it’s like okay

0:07:41.890,0:07:45.850
this group of people just kind of went

0:07:43.630,0:07:47.740
off to another country and started that

0:07:45.850,0:07:49.510
and there’s a war but they that’s not

0:07:47.740,0:07:51.670
like a huge part in their history that

0:07:49.510,0:07:58.090
they talk about yeah it’s kind of like

0:07:51.670,0:08:07.650
okay like the are loud neighbors we want

0:07:58.090,0:08:09.850
a nice life yeah but yeah they’re yeah

0:08:07.650,0:08:11.710
politicians and presidents have their

0:08:09.850,0:08:13.690
eyes set on Canada and then other Native

0:08:11.710,0:08:15.880
American territories and they’re like

0:08:13.690,0:08:19.090
let’s just take over the whole continent

0:08:15.880,0:08:21.430
while we’re at it um and so Congress is

0:08:19.090,0:08:24.280
really divided about going to war with

0:08:21.430,0:08:26.860
Great Britain because obviously Great

0:08:24.280,0:08:29.770
Britain has a way stronger Navy and a

0:08:26.860,0:08:32.110
lot more funding so to put it in

0:08:29.770,0:08:34.240
perspective the US Army only has about

0:08:32.110,0:08:36.010
ten to twelve thousand soldiers and they

0:08:34.240,0:08:39.760
weren’t like properly trained or

0:08:36.010,0:08:42.370
equipped and the US Navy only had 17

0:08:39.760,0:08:45.880
ships or Great Britain has a thousand

0:08:42.370,0:08:48.370
and then Britain collected 40 times more

0:08:45.880,0:08:51.520
tax revenue than the US so they’re way

0:08:48.370,0:08:52.150
more loaded than we are but at the time

0:08:51.520,0:08:54.610
again

0:08:52.150,0:08:58.090
Great Britain is fighting Napoleon and

0:08:54.610,0:08:59.440
um yeah they’re fighting Napoleon and so

0:08:58.090,0:09:00.880
they’re super distracted we’re not

0:08:59.440,0:09:03.790
really concentrating all of their

0:09:00.880,0:09:05.080
efforts on fighting the US and so

0:09:03.790,0:09:06.820
they’re kind of using that to their

0:09:05.080,0:09:10.390
advantage like okay they’re putting all

0:09:06.820,0:09:14.290
their efforts and all their best men I

0:09:10.390,0:09:16.720
guess um in France and so the northern

0:09:14.290,0:09:19.750
states they’re do you remember like the

0:09:16.720,0:09:22.330
Federalist Party I like yeah so that’s

0:09:19.750,0:09:23.920
like mostly northern states are in the

0:09:22.330,0:09:25.420
Federalist Party and so they don’t

0:09:23.920,0:09:28.570
support the war with Great Britain

0:09:25.420,0:09:30.250
because they rely on trade with the

0:09:28.570,0:09:31.470
country because like they don’t have a

0:09:30.250,0:09:33.180
lot of farming so they

0:09:31.470,0:09:34.470
really they want to keep trading with

0:09:33.180,0:09:37.350
Great Britain so they’re like let’s not

0:09:34.470,0:09:39.510
go to war but southern states have a lot

0:09:37.350,0:09:40.740
of farmland to implantation so they

0:09:39.510,0:09:43.590
don’t really have to worry about that

0:09:40.740,0:09:45.390
and they were like hey like yeah we

0:09:43.590,0:09:47.610
should go to war with Great Britain

0:09:45.390,0:09:50.400
because they also want more land for

0:09:47.610,0:09:51.990
farming and for slavery so yeah there’s

0:09:50.400,0:09:56.970
very much a divide between north and

0:09:51.990,0:09:58.590
south again um yeah and so when it’s

0:09:56.970,0:10:01.680
voted on in Congress it would actually

0:09:58.590,0:10:05.310
be the smallest margin of votes for a

0:10:01.680,0:10:06.840
declaration of war in US history so it

0:10:05.310,0:10:09.300
was so close like they just barely

0:10:06.840,0:10:12.180
passed it and so yeah this kind of shows

0:10:09.300,0:10:13.980
you what like the general feelings about

0:10:12.180,0:10:16.500
entering the war like people weren’t

0:10:13.980,0:10:20.070
really excited about it and I’m June

0:10:16.500,0:10:22.050
18th 1812 President James Madison signs

0:10:20.070,0:10:24.150
a declaration of war against Great

0:10:22.050,0:10:26.420
Britain and this is actually the first

0:10:24.150,0:10:28.230
time the u.s. declares war on anybody

0:10:26.420,0:10:31.020
because like in the war of independence

0:10:28.230,0:10:32.340
not like a country yet um now that

0:10:31.020,0:10:33.870
they’re the first country or like yeah

0:10:32.340,0:10:40.200
your First Lord

0:10:33.870,0:10:42.570
hmm interesting take on it and so yeah

0:10:40.200,0:10:45.900
so the war begins it almost immediately

0:10:42.570,0:10:48.630
like the US forces are attacking Canada

0:10:45.900,0:10:50.550
in order to like strike at Creighton

0:10:48.630,0:10:52.910
because it’s a British colony and so

0:10:50.550,0:10:54.960
their thought process is that you know

0:10:52.910,0:10:56.490
Canadians are going to join forces with

0:10:54.960,0:10:58.740
us because they’re going to want to

0:10:56.490,0:11:01.260
revolt against Great Britain and like

0:10:58.740,0:11:04.110
join like the free country of America

0:11:01.260,0:11:06.810
and they’re going to join our side but

0:11:04.110,0:11:09.810
like this that’s not what happened and

0:11:06.810,0:11:11.940
so like we went in way too confident and

0:11:09.810,0:11:15.360
we were very quickly defeated by

0:11:11.940,0:11:17.820
Canadian and British troops yeah and I

0:11:15.360,0:11:18.900
was like no we’re we’re not one of you

0:11:17.820,0:11:22.950
guys sorry

0:11:18.900,0:11:24.540
question so if okay so at this time

0:11:22.950,0:11:27.500
there’s already like an established

0:11:24.540,0:11:31.200
Canada but that’s just a territory of

0:11:27.500,0:11:33.930
England you know do we consider Canada

0:11:31.200,0:11:36.200
its own Canadian country or is it just

0:11:33.930,0:11:40.890
like this is just more of England land

0:11:36.200,0:11:43.890
yeah I think I think that’s a time like

0:11:40.890,0:11:44.690
Canada is still a young relatively

0:11:43.890,0:11:46.700
younger British

0:11:44.690,0:11:48.620
Hannie so i think it just is like okay

0:11:46.700,0:11:51.140
they’re like primarily afraid of I think

0:11:48.620,0:11:52.460
the people like living in Canada like

0:11:51.140,0:11:55.370
the residents of Canada

0:11:52.460,0:11:57.460
feel more independent from Britain but

0:11:55.370,0:12:02.450
like Americans kind of see them as just

0:11:57.460,0:12:03.980
British people yeah British people yeah

0:12:02.450,0:12:08.150
I believe that’s like a general

0:12:03.980,0:12:09.980
sentiment but we argue out very quickly

0:12:08.150,0:12:12.910
defeated by Canada and we’re very

0:12:09.980,0:12:16.220
shocked like whoa we were not expecting

0:12:12.910,0:12:19.430
strong resistance everyone’s supposed to

0:12:16.220,0:12:25.400
be so nice in Canada hey everyone how we

0:12:19.430,0:12:27.890
planned it but yeah so US troops they

0:12:25.400,0:12:31.070
actually surrendered the town of Detroit

0:12:27.890,0:12:34.220
Michigan without any shots being fired

0:12:31.070,0:12:36.920
like they’re just so scared that they I

0:12:34.220,0:12:38.630
think they kind of just run away like no

0:12:36.920,0:12:44.720
in the United States we were just like

0:12:38.630,0:12:46.610
you can have Detroit yeah and like they

0:12:44.720,0:12:51.230
claim the town of Detroit so we are

0:12:46.610,0:12:55.430
invaded by Canada also this is very nice

0:12:51.230,0:12:57.320
the Canada that I know a so polite it’s

0:12:55.430,0:12:59.420
like if you met a really nice person and

0:12:57.320,0:13:01.610
you’re like can I use your bathroom and

0:12:59.420,0:13:03.020
they’re like no you know what I mean it

0:13:01.610,0:13:04.850
catches you really off-guard because you

0:13:03.020,0:13:07.040
think that it’s just like a given that

0:13:04.850,0:13:09.470
they would let you use your yeah I don’t

0:13:07.040,0:13:11.870
know okay well that’s kind of like one

0:13:09.470,0:13:13.430
of the issues with this like why we were

0:13:11.870,0:13:16.070
quickly defeated because we didn’t like

0:13:13.430,0:13:18.110
give much thought to it and we like our

0:13:16.070,0:13:21.200
planning wasn’t great we’re kind of like

0:13:18.110,0:13:23.810
let’s just go yeah it was our first war

0:13:21.200,0:13:26.860
to be fair it was the first time we were

0:13:23.810,0:13:29.420
Rikki so we got to cut us some slack but

0:13:26.860,0:13:33.050
but yeah so okay so now I’m going to

0:13:29.420,0:13:35.930
rewind to the fall of 1811 so before the

0:13:33.050,0:13:37.220
war has officially been declared um and

0:13:35.930,0:13:40.520
I’m going to talk about the Battle of

0:13:37.220,0:13:43.010
Tippecanoe in Indiana have you heard of

0:13:40.520,0:13:46.040
this battle because this maybe it’s

0:13:43.010,0:13:48.140
because I like I don’t know Illinois is

0:13:46.040,0:13:50.330
close to Indiana but I feel like I’ve

0:13:48.140,0:13:52.339
heard of the Battle of Tippecanoe so

0:13:50.330,0:13:54.530
many times at school but I didn’t like

0:13:52.339,0:13:58.209
remember what it was but so basically

0:13:54.530,0:14:02.899
fall of 1811 um so in

0:13:58.209,0:14:04.819
Tippecanoe Indiana so Shawnee chief to

0:14:02.899,0:14:07.730
come sir his name is to come sir

0:14:04.819,0:14:10.600
he’s the leader of profit sound which is

0:14:07.730,0:14:13.579
a Native American settlement and so

0:14:10.600,0:14:16.550
chief Tecumseh he’s encouraging other

0:14:13.579,0:14:18.529
Native Americans to abandon the ways of

0:14:16.550,0:14:23.110
whites especially in regards to alcohol

0:14:18.529,0:14:25.759
and consumer goods and he’s like okay ah

0:14:23.110,0:14:27.199
like just don’t listen to what all the

0:14:25.759,0:14:29.089
white people are telling you like just

0:14:27.199,0:14:32.089
ignore them and then like we should all

0:14:29.089,0:14:34.790
I guess like unite let’s create our own

0:14:32.089,0:14:36.860
side on my end like there’s safety in

0:14:34.790,0:14:38.420
numbers like yeah so he’s creating the

0:14:36.860,0:14:40.639
settlement and he’s also a lot more

0:14:38.420,0:14:43.220
militant than other Native American

0:14:40.639,0:14:45.769
leaders at the time and so his vision is

0:14:43.220,0:14:48.470
uniting Native American tribes across

0:14:45.769,0:14:51.199
the country and actively resisting white

0:14:48.470,0:14:53.389
settlement and so obviously the US

0:14:51.199,0:14:56.660
government is not a fan of to come so

0:14:53.389,0:14:59.329
and so they send General William Henry

0:14:56.660,0:15:01.370
Harrison to destroy the settlement of

0:14:59.329,0:15:03.769
profits found in the Battle of

0:15:01.370,0:15:05.660
Tippecanoe which also okay

0:15:03.769,0:15:08.300
I just want to add a quick side note so

0:15:05.660,0:15:11.029
William Henry Harrison this general he

0:15:08.300,0:15:14.480
would later become president in 1840 and

0:15:11.029,0:15:17.360
he gives the longest inauguration speech

0:15:14.480,0:15:19.730
ever in US history he catches a cold

0:15:17.360,0:15:22.850
from this speech and then he dies forty

0:15:19.730,0:15:24.500
days later oh I think I’ve heard of this

0:15:22.850,0:15:28.720
president isn’t that is he the one with

0:15:24.500,0:15:31.579
the shortest term yeah passes away

0:15:28.720,0:15:34.399
pretty much yeah a little what was his

0:15:31.579,0:15:37.220
name again here William Henry Harrison

0:15:34.399,0:15:39.829
William Henry Harrison yikes

0:15:37.220,0:15:41.509
yeah I thought that was I did not know

0:15:39.829,0:15:44.420
that so I know long was his speech do

0:15:41.509,0:15:46.399
you know like an hour no I think it was

0:15:44.420,0:15:52.269
a long long time I think it was like a

0:15:46.399,0:15:55.819
few hours but yeah yeah but yes I just

0:15:52.269,0:15:57.500
remember I just want to throw that so

0:15:55.819,0:15:59.990
back to the Battle of Tippecanoe so

0:15:57.500,0:16:04.370
Harrison his forces defeat to come sir

0:15:59.990,0:16:06.500
and this defeat convinces many Native

0:16:04.370,0:16:09.259
Americans in the region including to

0:16:06.500,0:16:12.110
come sir that they need to join British

0:16:09.259,0:16:13.700
forces later in the war of 1812

0:16:12.110,0:16:16.310
because they need to fight against the

0:16:13.700,0:16:17.959
US in order to prevent American settlers

0:16:16.310,0:16:20.329
from pushing them further out of their

0:16:17.959,0:16:23.390
lands um so this is really important

0:16:20.329,0:16:24.920
because once the war of 1812 starts the

0:16:23.390,0:16:27.730
u.s. is fighting against British

0:16:24.920,0:16:30.680
Canadian and Native American troops um

0:16:27.730,0:16:33.050
yeah so it’s like it’s not looking good

0:16:30.680,0:16:35.120
for the US but we do have quite a few

0:16:33.050,0:16:37.370
successes throughout the war like

0:16:35.120,0:16:39.860
surprisingly so in the early months of

0:16:37.370,0:16:42.800
the war we actually scored a lot of

0:16:39.860,0:16:44.839
victories against the Royal Navy because

0:16:42.800,0:16:46.610
again they’re fighting in France and

0:16:44.839,0:16:48.890
they’re not really I’m paying too much

0:16:46.610,0:16:51.079
attention to us we’re just kind of like

0:16:48.890,0:16:54.529
a side note really oh gosh now we gotta

0:16:51.079,0:16:57.470
worry about these guys again but um we

0:16:54.529,0:17:01.010
also defeat British invasions in New

0:16:57.470,0:17:03.649
York and Baltimore and then General

0:17:01.010,0:17:06.709
William Henry Harrison and he reclaims

0:17:03.649,0:17:09.169
Detroit in the Battle of Thames and then

0:17:06.709,0:17:13.939
he actually kills – comes up in this

0:17:09.169,0:17:18.140
conflict so yeah so we do Windows but

0:17:13.939,0:17:21.049
then we also suffer a lot of defeats and

0:17:18.140,0:17:23.449
so we lose Detroit originally Pro back

0:17:21.049,0:17:25.189
to that and then this is like just the

0:17:23.449,0:17:29.240
while they’re saying I can’t get over

0:17:25.189,0:17:30.740
this so on August 24 1814 um also August

0:17:29.240,0:17:34.220
21st is my little sister’s birthday so

0:17:30.740,0:17:37.790
shout-out to her so British and Canadian

0:17:34.220,0:17:41.210
Forces C’s Washington DC and burn down

0:17:37.790,0:17:43.580
the White House so it’s just like that

0:17:41.210,0:17:44.809
think of it is like not only was our

0:17:43.580,0:17:48.169
nation’s capitol

0:17:44.809,0:17:50.090
like invaded and seized by foreign

0:17:48.169,0:17:52.549
troops but they literally burned down

0:17:50.090,0:17:56.210
the White House this is what Canadians

0:17:52.549,0:17:59.750
are both Canadian and British troops

0:17:56.210,0:18:01.190
how dare what oh my gosh I didn’t

0:17:59.750,0:18:04.580
realize the White House got burned down

0:18:01.190,0:18:08.450
like how burned to a crisp or just like

0:18:04.580,0:18:12.950
a little charred I don’t know I died I

0:18:08.450,0:18:14.900
honestly don’t know um yeah but I do

0:18:12.950,0:18:17.419
know that like the design of the White

0:18:14.900,0:18:19.520
House has changed a lot since it was

0:18:17.419,0:18:21.110
okay we didn’t even have a White House

0:18:19.520,0:18:23.570
for a while I don’t know I know that

0:18:21.110,0:18:24.919
design has came so I’m guessing it had

0:18:23.570,0:18:27.340
to do with the fact that becomes

0:18:24.919,0:18:27.340
destroyed

0:18:27.630,0:18:33.179
that was probably a big factor but yeah

0:18:30.000,0:18:36.380
third opportunity to remodel I guess you

0:18:33.179,0:18:39.780
want to put some light on the situation

0:18:36.380,0:18:42.360
yeah look at it but yeah when I was

0:18:39.780,0:18:44.940
working in Canada this is what little

0:18:42.360,0:18:47.130
people would always read this up all the

0:18:44.940,0:18:49.590
time like Oh remember when we burnt down

0:18:47.130,0:18:51.419
the White House in the war of 1812 and

0:18:49.590,0:18:53.730
like he would love to like talk about it

0:18:51.419,0:18:57.990
I’m like oh my gosh like I really have

0:18:53.730,0:19:00.030
no idea that what Canadians remember and

0:18:57.990,0:19:01.950
they are very proud of it this is the

0:19:00.030,0:19:04.470
first time I’m hearing that the White

0:19:01.950,0:19:10.230
House was burnt down by Canadian that’s

0:19:04.470,0:19:11.970
what we don’t talk about this it’s

0:19:10.230,0:19:14.070
probably cuz it’s embarrassing for us

0:19:11.970,0:19:17.190
right yeah

0:19:14.070,0:19:19.679
but I thought that was wild our capital

0:19:17.190,0:19:23.850
like was seized by foreign invaders

0:19:19.679,0:19:27.169
that’s laughs but again like there are

0:19:23.850,0:19:30.240
more successes so despite all this like

0:19:27.169,0:19:33.150
we still have some victories and we turn

0:19:30.240,0:19:36.900
out okay in the end obviously and so on

0:19:33.150,0:19:40.590
September 13th 1814 for two years after

0:19:36.900,0:19:43.080
the war began u.s. soldiers successfully

0:19:40.590,0:19:45.780
defend Fort McHenry after 25 hours

0:19:43.080,0:19:48.000
straight of bombardment by the British

0:19:45.780,0:19:50.010
Navy that’s a long time and then the

0:19:48.000,0:19:52.860
next morning the fourth soldier is

0:19:50.010,0:19:54.720
raised a giant year’s flag and this

0:19:52.860,0:19:56.850
would be the site that inspired an

0:19:54.720,0:19:59.730
onlooker to write a poem about the

0:19:56.850,0:20:02.490
battle and the poet was Francis Scott

0:19:59.730,0:20:04.559
Key and his poem would later be set to

0:20:02.490,0:20:05.910
the tune of an old English drinking song

0:20:04.559,0:20:08.220
and would become known as the

0:20:05.910,0:20:11.850
star-spangled banner our national anthem

0:20:08.220,0:20:15.299
so sweet but I didn’t realize it was to

0:20:11.850,0:20:16.799
the tune of a drinking song also did not

0:20:15.299,0:20:21.720
know that I found it out of my research

0:20:16.799,0:20:25.280
and I was like oh yeah but I definitely

0:20:21.720,0:20:25.280
thought that the star-spangled banner

0:20:26.630,0:20:32.610
were the 1812 yeah me too I thought that

0:20:29.640,0:20:35.159
the we had that are like national anthem

0:20:32.610,0:20:38.040
was locked down like by the Revolution

0:20:35.159,0:20:39.540
time I didn’t realize it was like 40

0:20:38.040,0:20:42.510
years later and

0:20:39.540,0:20:44.580
took a while for his poem to be like

0:20:42.510,0:20:47.130
sent to the tune of music and then

0:20:44.580,0:20:50.580
chosen as an anthem so we didn’t have an

0:20:47.130,0:20:54.060
anthem for a while I think on yeah

0:20:50.580,0:20:58.200
so it’s wild so alright so now I’m gonna

0:20:54.060,0:21:00.180
so flash forward to February 17th 1815

0:20:58.200,0:21:03.600
so this is three years after the start

0:21:00.180,0:21:06.420
of the war um the Treaty of Ghent is

0:21:03.600,0:21:10.380
ratified which officially ends the war

0:21:06.420,0:21:13.050
of 1812 um so if you look at this treaty

0:21:10.380,0:21:17.040
you can easily see how pointless this

0:21:13.050,0:21:19.350
whole war is because so the US and Great

0:21:17.040,0:21:21.410
Britain they keep their original

0:21:19.350,0:21:23.790
territories like theirs they don’t

0:21:21.410,0:21:25.740
there’s no exchange in territories

0:21:23.790,0:21:29.610
between the two nations so it’s not like

0:21:25.740,0:21:31.590
okay we gain Canada or like Great

0:21:29.610,0:21:34.500
Britain one parts of us know nothing

0:21:31.590,0:21:37.470
happens and then the treaty says nothing

0:21:34.500,0:21:39.420
about ending British impressment

0:21:37.470,0:21:41.760
of US sailors and it doesn’t say

0:21:39.420,0:21:43.470
anything about like restricting trade so

0:21:41.760,0:21:46.470
like literally the reasons we came into

0:21:43.470,0:21:49.380
war like nothing there’s nothing yet

0:21:46.470,0:21:51.270
nothing is achieved and basically

0:21:49.380,0:21:54.510
everything returns back to normal for

0:21:51.270,0:21:56.820
the US and Great Britain but okay so

0:21:54.510,0:22:01.140
actually I thought this is so funny so

0:21:56.820,0:22:03.750
on January 8th 1815 so unaware that the

0:22:01.140,0:22:05.850
war had already ended British troops

0:22:03.750,0:22:08.940
attacked the u.s. in the Battle of New

0:22:05.850,0:22:12.180
Orleans and they are quickly defeated by

0:22:08.940,0:22:14.880
General Andrew Jackson’s army and so

0:22:12.180,0:22:16.500
even though this was technically after

0:22:14.880,0:22:18.750
peace had been declared and it’s like

0:22:16.500,0:22:22.290
that it shouldn’t really be part of war

0:22:18.750,0:22:24.240
of 1812 this left Americans with a taste

0:22:22.290,0:22:26.460
of victory so they’re like oh yeah we

0:22:24.240,0:22:29.490
definitely want this or check this out

0:22:26.460,0:22:30.960
uh even though none of their pre-war

0:22:29.490,0:22:33.060
objectives we’re at ease they were like

0:22:30.960,0:22:36.830
yep we definitely won like pat on the

0:22:33.060,0:22:36.830
back for us it’s the American Way

0:22:38.350,0:22:42.309
we also won like we’re feeling pretty

0:22:40.600,0:22:44.919
good like that last battle doesn’t

0:22:42.309,0:22:46.780
really count and like so like yeah there

0:22:44.919,0:22:48.730
because each country like has their own

0:22:46.780,0:22:52.780
successes in defeat so both countries

0:22:48.730,0:22:55.240
are like yeah we want for us and however

0:22:52.780,0:22:57.370
while there are no clear winners there

0:22:55.240,0:22:59.710
is definitely a loser of the war and

0:22:57.370,0:23:03.250
that is the Native Americans so they

0:22:59.710,0:23:05.110
suffer significant casualties from this

0:23:03.250,0:23:10.780
war and they lose a lot of their

0:23:05.110,0:23:13.929
territory to the US um so despite how

0:23:10.780,0:23:16.900
little was achieved as a result the war

0:23:13.929,0:23:19.690
of 1812 has a huge impact on American

0:23:16.900,0:23:21.190
patriotism and politics at the time so

0:23:19.690,0:23:23.890
it’s seen as a second war of

0:23:21.190,0:23:26.590
independence to Americans or like yes

0:23:23.890,0:23:29.830
we’d be separated yet again and then if

0:23:26.590,0:23:31.900
this begins an era of like partisan

0:23:29.830,0:23:33.309
agreement so both parties are agreeing

0:23:31.900,0:23:35.950
with each other and then there’s a lot

0:23:33.309,0:23:38.500
of national pride that is being felt and

0:23:35.950,0:23:40.990
this will later be known as the era of

0:23:38.500,0:23:43.980
good feelings which is like such a cool

0:23:40.990,0:23:47.200
name just like good vibes only basically

0:23:43.980,0:23:49.990
modern-day yeah yeah I love it

0:23:47.200,0:23:51.880
but um yeah so the war of 1812 is

0:23:49.990,0:23:54.159
basically the end of the Federalist

0:23:51.880,0:23:57.159
Party because they’re seen as being

0:23:54.159,0:24:00.130
unpatriotic for their anti-war fans and

0:23:57.159,0:24:02.380
it produces a new generation of American

0:24:00.130,0:24:05.470
generals and it helps lead Andrew

0:24:02.380,0:24:07.960
Jackson John Quincy Adams James Monroe

0:24:05.470,0:24:10.419
and William Henry Harrison into the US

0:24:07.960,0:24:14.169
presidency so this really impacts our

0:24:10.419,0:24:16.330
politics and most importantly the war of

0:24:14.169,0:24:19.240
1812 confirms that the u.s. really

0:24:16.330,0:24:21.970
exists so it really like solidified

0:24:19.240,0:24:24.250
their real nation yeah a real

0:24:21.970,0:24:25.870
independent nation and so after this

0:24:24.250,0:24:29.140
Great Britain would never invade the

0:24:25.870,0:24:31.750
u.s. again and the u.s. not only saw

0:24:29.140,0:24:33.760
itself as an indicate independent nation

0:24:31.750,0:24:35.440
separate from Great Britain but also as

0:24:33.760,0:24:37.179
a big player on the world stage for like

0:24:35.440,0:24:40.419
while we could we can really achieve

0:24:37.179,0:24:44.320
anything if we have enough soldiers and

0:24:40.419,0:24:47.320
like gun power but um yeah and so today

0:24:44.320,0:24:48.640
when we remember the war of 1812 I think

0:24:47.320,0:24:51.220
it’s also important to remember that

0:24:48.640,0:24:52.299
there are four very distinct versions of

0:24:51.220,0:24:54.489
the story

0:24:52.299,0:24:57.759
so in comparison to the American

0:24:54.489,0:25:00.209
perspective the British version is often

0:24:57.759,0:25:03.159
overshadowed in history books by the

0:25:00.209,0:25:05.619
Napoleonic Wars and so I actually like

0:25:03.159,0:25:07.629
texted my aim British friends the other

0:25:05.619,0:25:10.509
day shout out to him he knows who he is

0:25:07.629,0:25:12.849
and I was okay what do you know about

0:25:10.509,0:25:14.919
war of 1812 he was like literally like I

0:25:12.849,0:25:17.979
don’t know that much he’s like we always

0:25:14.919,0:25:19.899
talked about poliana cores and yeah he

0:25:17.979,0:25:23.229
doesn’t really remember war of 1812

0:25:19.899,0:25:25.359
um and so to again to put these two

0:25:23.229,0:25:27.969
conflicts into perspective the war of

0:25:25.359,0:25:30.700
1812 and then the poliana cores so in

0:25:27.969,0:25:33.219
the war of 1812 20,000 people died on

0:25:30.700,0:25:37.299
both sides but then in the Napoleonic

0:25:33.219,0:25:39.099
Wars 3.5 million people died so that’s

0:25:37.299,0:25:42.459
like a huge difference so obviously it

0:25:39.099,0:25:45.249
makes sense why this war is over tattled

0:25:42.459,0:25:48.339
because again it’s pretty pointless in

0:25:45.249,0:25:51.129
the end and additionally the British see

0:25:48.339,0:25:51.969
the main cause of the world of 1812 is

0:25:51.129,0:25:54.329
American

0:25:51.969,0:25:57.549
America’s desire for territorial

0:25:54.329,0:26:01.149
acquisition so they’re like you guys

0:25:57.549,0:26:02.859
just wanted to take Canada so chill make

0:26:01.149,0:26:06.820
sense I feel like you’re a new nation

0:26:02.859,0:26:10.119
you want to prove that your mess with

0:26:06.820,0:26:18.729
question on the dates of the war so how

0:26:10.119,0:26:20.229
long did the war lasts like 1815 it’s

0:26:18.729,0:26:22.719
like a really stupid name because it

0:26:20.229,0:26:24.700
lasts multiple years but and then

0:26:22.719,0:26:27.399
follow-up question so you mentioned

0:26:24.700,0:26:28.929
Andrew Jackson like towards the end of

0:26:27.399,0:26:30.609
it and then also that the Native

0:26:28.929,0:26:33.279
Americans suffered the most so Trail of

0:26:30.609,0:26:34.929
Tears is that related to this at all I

0:26:33.279,0:26:37.479
don’t really know much about the Trail

0:26:34.929,0:26:40.839
of Tears other than Andrew Jackson did

0:26:37.479,0:26:42.369
it and it was a really sad point yeah so

0:26:40.839,0:26:45.820
actually honestly we should cover that

0:26:42.369,0:26:47.829
in one of our next episodes but yeah so

0:26:45.820,0:26:51.039
Andrew Jackson at this time he’s a

0:26:47.829,0:26:53.829
general in the war and like he gains a

0:26:51.039,0:26:55.509
lot of I guess like natural recognition

0:26:53.829,0:26:58.089
and people are like well he’s a war hero

0:26:55.509,0:27:00.279
and so that’s what what helps him win

0:26:58.089,0:27:03.399
presidency but Trail of Tears and isn’t

0:27:00.279,0:27:05.710
until after he assumed power is u.s.

0:27:03.399,0:27:09.010
president and it was

0:27:05.710,0:27:11.350
basically basically what happened like

0:27:09.010,0:27:13.990
just totally dude brief summary like the

0:27:11.350,0:27:15.340
u.s. wanted to acquire all this Native

0:27:13.990,0:27:18.670
American territory that was spread

0:27:15.340,0:27:21.670
across the country and so they force the

0:27:18.670,0:27:25.180
American tribes to relocate to the Great

0:27:21.670,0:27:26.950
Plains so then like white settlers could

0:27:25.180,0:27:30.340
live in their lands until they literally

0:27:26.950,0:27:32.500
force them to like walk um like hundreds

0:27:30.340,0:27:34.840
of thousand miles and so many Native

0:27:32.500,0:27:38.620
Americans died on the way because it’s a

0:27:34.840,0:27:41.920
really like awful journey yeah I just

0:27:38.620,0:27:44.260
did the road trip back from the west of

0:27:41.920,0:27:45.670
the East that’s not a joke I was like

0:27:44.260,0:27:49.120
why would anyone ever want to walk

0:27:45.670,0:27:51.520
through like Nevada or Nebraska for this

0:27:49.120,0:27:54.460
long it’s really the long way he

0:27:51.520,0:27:59.260
definitely did not have a choice in that

0:27:54.460,0:28:01.540
and yeah so I mean I don’t I think I’m

0:27:59.260,0:28:04.090
assuming that Andy Jackson always kind

0:28:01.540,0:28:06.430
of had these views since he was like

0:28:04.090,0:28:10.690
younger but I don’t know if this war

0:28:06.430,0:28:13.540
kind of helped fuel his views that was

0:28:10.690,0:28:16.570
later Lee yeah but um yeah so we should

0:28:13.540,0:28:18.730
come later yeah I’ll take that one up

0:28:16.570,0:28:21.610
since I brought it up I’ll cover it

0:28:18.730,0:28:25.720
right everyone stay tuned for that but

0:28:21.610,0:28:27.310
hey awesome so actually yeah so the in

0:28:25.720,0:28:30.430
regards to the Native American

0:28:27.310,0:28:32.410
perspective so the Native Americans once

0:28:30.430,0:28:34.420
again lost many lives and a lot of

0:28:32.410,0:28:36.550
territories at the hands of American

0:28:34.420,0:28:38.980
soldiers and to come so one of their

0:28:36.550,0:28:42.070
most notable heroes dies in the conflict

0:28:38.980,0:28:44.740
and so the defeat of succumb saw and the

0:28:42.070,0:28:47.320
Indian Confederation or Prophetstown in

0:28:44.740,0:28:50.260
this whole vision of uniting Native

0:28:47.320,0:28:52.780
American tribes um hit that defeat would

0:28:50.260,0:28:54.430
be seen as a decisive turning point and

0:28:52.780,0:28:56.860
they’re losing struggle to govern

0:28:54.430,0:28:59.740
themselves and stand up against the US

0:28:56.860,0:29:01.300
government so that’s kind of how it’s

0:28:59.740,0:29:03.550
remembered from the Native American

0:29:01.300,0:29:06.640
perspective and like we talked about

0:29:03.550,0:29:08.950
earlier for Canadians the war of 1812 is

0:29:06.640,0:29:12.010
a cornerstone of nationhood and it’s

0:29:08.950,0:29:13.930
talked about a lot lot more and it shows

0:29:12.010,0:29:16.090
that they’re this warlike shows that

0:29:13.930,0:29:18.010
they’re not only a distinct nation from

0:29:16.090,0:29:19.190
America but also that they’re strong

0:29:18.010,0:29:21.230
enough to

0:29:19.190,0:29:24.440
luckily defeat an American attack and

0:29:21.230,0:29:29.020
are actually able to invade the US and

0:29:24.440,0:29:32.120
seize the nation’s capital and yeah so

0:29:29.020,0:29:33.730
Canadians are very proud of this moment

0:29:32.120,0:29:36.230
because yeah they’re like okay we’re not

0:29:33.730,0:29:38.060
we’re not the same as America like we’re

0:29:36.230,0:29:40.070
two different nations we need to be

0:29:38.060,0:29:43.970
regarded as two different nations we

0:29:40.070,0:29:45.890
have different values and yeah and like

0:29:43.970,0:29:50.660
me yeah we might be polite but it

0:29:45.890,0:29:52.160
doesn’t mean were weak that’s true I

0:29:50.660,0:29:53.390
wonder if that should be like a saying

0:29:52.160,0:29:57.110
Rick Canadians

0:29:53.390,0:30:04.190
yeah but not weak polite but not

0:29:57.110,0:30:06.530
pushovers yeah too much yeah yeah and so

0:30:04.190,0:30:08.240
that’s basically a very brief summary of

0:30:06.530,0:30:11.510
the war of 1812 there are so many

0:30:08.240,0:30:13.820
battles that I I don’t know how to talk

0:30:11.510,0:30:16.060
about like battles so if you’re

0:30:13.820,0:30:18.290
interested there’s so much information

0:30:16.060,0:30:20.990
available on the Internet but yeah

0:30:18.290,0:30:24.650
that’s basically a brief summary of the

0:30:20.990,0:30:26.330
war of 1812 okay thank you now I really

0:30:24.650,0:30:28.490
I appreciate that you like to cover the

0:30:26.330,0:30:30.650
wars I just had a conversation with my

0:30:28.490,0:30:32.900
sister and she was like yeah not always

0:30:30.650,0:30:35.180
covers the war that’s really good and I

0:30:32.900,0:30:37.730
struggle to cover things that aren’t

0:30:35.180,0:30:42.260
tech related or like science and stuff

0:30:37.730,0:30:45.500
so thank you for covering this yeah yeah

0:30:42.260,0:30:47.270
I was I kind of was a little reluctant

0:30:45.500,0:30:51.890
to start my research just because I was

0:30:47.270,0:30:55.730
like early 1800s it’s so boring but such

0:30:51.890,0:30:58.790
a wild part of US history and yeah it

0:30:55.730,0:31:00.650
was it’s an interesting war rate and the

0:30:58.790,0:31:02.600
title doesn’t give it away you just call

0:31:00.650,0:31:05.240
it the war of 1812 that doesn’t tell you

0:31:02.600,0:31:07.610
anything significant about it yeah

0:31:05.240,0:31:09.680
that’s a time period right if you could

0:31:07.610,0:31:12.050
rename the war what would you rename it

0:31:09.680,0:31:14.210
oh my gosh that’s a great question

0:31:12.050,0:31:16.820
like something I need to do something

0:31:14.210,0:31:20.240
about like Canada and beating us and

0:31:16.820,0:31:23.000
yeah something like the the Canadian war

0:31:20.240,0:31:25.850
or something like that I feel like

0:31:23.000,0:31:27.620
that’s a great the Canadian war because

0:31:25.850,0:31:28.150
I just have a hard time seeing Canadians

0:31:27.620,0:31:31.200
wanting

0:31:28.150,0:31:33.910
to have a war with us yeah yeah I think

0:31:31.200,0:31:35.920
America’s PR team at the time when they

0:31:33.910,0:31:39.520
decided to name this war they really

0:31:35.920,0:31:41.830
need a lesson on clickbait catchy name

0:31:39.520,0:31:44.080
I’m gonna click on more everything’s all

0:31:41.830,0:31:46.000
we need but it’s kind of embarrassing

0:31:44.080,0:31:48.760
for us maybe the Canadians have a

0:31:46.000,0:31:53.080
different name for it like the time we

0:31:48.760,0:31:55.960
beat the u.s. we our greatest moment in

0:31:53.080,0:31:59.680
history would it like the Canadian

0:31:55.960,0:32:02.470
