The War of 1812 is one of Canada’s greatest moments; it
was fought between the Canadians and the American. Sense the Americans lost this war they pretend that it never happened because
the Americans had greatly outnumbered us in troops and they knew it. The Americans original plan was to seize Montreal and
cut the support between Upper and Lower Canada therefore taking the war, but this plan was stop by the Canadian’s Native
Even though Canada was greatly out numbered in troops we where
more prepared for war so we kicked their buts! In 1812 on July 17, thanks to Sir Isaac Brock Canadians bloodlessly capture
the U.S. key posts at Michilimackinac I, Lake Huron, and Detroit. After this move the Americans thought it was a mere matter
if matching that would win the battle. But instead of the Americans capturing any Canadian anything we took the Battle of
Queenston Heights at the cost of our General Sir Isaac Brock.
After the battle of Queenston Heights the American troops started
to fear the Canadians and refused to cross into Canadian territory. So the Americans decide to stay in their own country and
on January 22. 1813 they try to retake Detroit but fail. While the Americans are busy with Detroit Canadian troops take Frenchtown.
Which cause the Americans to be in even more fear of the Canadians and abandon all future plans of invasion for the winter.
The only Americans in Canada at this time are prisoners.
Canada then decides to act defensively and allow the Americans
to attack. The Americans are determined to seize Kingston and cut the support between the two Canadas. But this plan is near
imposable so instead they go to York [Toronto] and steal all the valuable supplies and practly burn it to the ground. When
the Canadians return to York and see the damage they march into America and burn the Great War ship they where building and
before it was even finished.
The burning of York is just the start of the Americans time of
good luck. The Americans manage to take Niagara peninsula, Stony Creek, and Beaver Dams. The Americans luck doesn’t
last for long as the Canadians decide that the Americans have done enough damage and we push them back into their own country
but Niagara peninsula remained no-mans-land. At
the Beginning of December the American prisoners in Canada are set free and start their way back to America but on their way
they burn the town of Nework. Because the Canadians gave the Americans an early Christmas present by letting their men free
the Americans respond by burning down another city, so we push those mean Americans back all the way to Washington and burn
all of Washington to the ground starting with the White house.
