War with England. Barnes Public School 1885

President Madison did everything within his power to maintain peace with England but the ill feelings between the two countries only continued to increase. British ships kept searching American vessels on the high seas and carrying away American sea men to serve on English war ships while British emissaries from Canada were sending arms to the Indians in the North West and inciting them to make war against the United States. 

General Harrison met and defeated the Indians under the great chief Tecumseh’s brother, the prophet at the Battle of Tippecanoe; (1811) Then by 1812 the British outrages had reached such a point that the country could stand them no longer. War was accordingly declared against England. The Federalists opposed the war very bitterly, both before it began and while it lasted, but their unpatriotic force offended the people generally and by the time the war was over the Federalist Party had become badly disorganized.

 When war was declared in 1812 two armies were sent to Canada but they had no success. One of them under General William Hull fell back to Detroit without striking a blow. When the British following after him, appeared in Detroit Hull became scared and surrendered his army and with it all of Michigan. The American officers were very angry that no resistance was made and the soldiers who were eager to fight for their country wept at the disgrace. 

They knew their commander was a coward. General Hull was afterward tried for cowardice and condemned to be shot but the president in the exercise of his mercy spared his life. The second army fought bravely at Queenstown Heights but was ultimately captured.
