Canada wouldn't be that assertive with their explanation.

Canadians love bragging about burning down the white house. I do at least.

My entire view on Canada is different now.

What's this? Not one single spelling or grammar error?

Well, US, UK and Canada's main language is English.

Canada wasn't even Canada during the War of 1812. And the primary objective of the United States was never to take over Canada (while it was a possibility). It was mostly about America's pent up rage against the British, and the Native Americans' pent up range against the colonists. The British were more interested in the Napoleonic wars, and Canada only had the troops that Britain sent. The outcome was really that the Native Americans lost, the new Americans turned their anger into patriotism, the Canadians decided to work on their own independence to avoid getting caught up in other wars for Britain, and Britain got slightly distracted from their Napoleonic wars for a couple of seconds.

When we went to make a grab for Canada, it was more of a " **** it, why not. Let's try and take more British land. That'll really piss 'em off."

And it did.

I think this is funny, because us here in Europe only hear about the Napoleonic wars. I myself did not hear about the North American war of 1812 until I stumbled upon it as a teenager.

It really bugs me when Canadians say that they burned down the Whitehouse, when in reality there were almost no Canadian troops involved in the Burning of Washington, the vast majority were Brittish troops who had sailed to America for the war.

Not only that, but Americans also managed to burn down Toronto. Burning down a whole city rather than a one building seems more devastating.

The war of 1812 ranks right up there with World War 1 on the list of wars that were ******* pointless. I don't mean that by end results, but rather what they were fighting over

Napoleonic Wars are really ******* interesting.

I think they're made out to be less important than they were. You don't get taught about in until A-level in Britain, and even then its only the Congress of Viena

all these comments are pointless, the US and Britain had a little skrimish, no harm no foul, no real victors and at the end was the start of an alliance between US and Britain, and canada remained cold and useless.

So many conflicting opinions that all think they are facts.. How can any of you say most of this with complete certancy when all you really are is a person on the internet, like everyone else.. You werent there. Ive read tons of opinions on the matter and i honestly have no idea what to believe so im going to just research it for myself and assume everything here is ******** until proven otherwise..

Contrary to popular belief, Canadian militia were not present at the burning of Washington; General Ross and over 4,000 British regulars landed on the eastern coast of Maryland and march inland. They were met by 6,000 American militia near Bladensburg. Although the Americans had more men, they weren't a match for the British regulars, and neither was their commander. The American army fled, and the redcoats marched into Washington.

Man if we got that Andy Jackson victory that occurred after the war was over before we decided so, who knows how long we would have fought with the changed morale. Andy was a badass though.

yea the top panel is exactly how i was taught in school, i brought up the question of the british having you send their military all the way across the pacific ocean and the teach pretty much said that didnt matter
