One of the main causes of the War of 1812 was the violations of shipping rights by the British. British fleets started harassing American ships and taking British American citizen’s prisoners to fill their own naval vessels. In an attempt to help rectify restrictions of the embargo that had been originally set by Thomas Jefferson when he was president between Britain and France; President Madison spoke with Napoleon and he said that he would remove his decrees if the British did as well. The British refused and President Madison was left without a choice and asked Congress to declare war on Britain. During this time Britain was also encouraging the Native American Indians to cause conflicts with American settlers.
The American Revolution was a war between the American colonies and Great Britain, in which the American colonies won their independence from great Britain. Gaining their independence from Britain was not as easy as it might have sounded. People in America were strongly independent and wanted to do things for themselves, but Great Britain had different plans for the them. The rules that were inflicted upon the Americans evoked many factors that were responsible for the American Revolution. The British government used ways to coerce the Americans. They did this through social, political, and economic factors. Ideas of freedom, laws passed by British Parliament, and limiting trading led for people in America to grow resentment of British rule
The Monroe Doctrine was a major factor in shaping the United States and its involvement with other countries from Europe and in the Western Hemisphere. The doctrine was the result of a few diplomatic problems. “The first was the minor clash with Russia concerning the northwest coast of North America. In this quarrel, Secretary of State John Quincy Adams expressed the principle that the American continents were no longer to be considered as a field for colonization by European powers“("Monroe Doctrine.") The Monroe Doctrine initially called for an end to any intervention in the Americas by European countries, but the doctrine was later expanded to include all of the Western Hemisphere.
The Monroe Doctrine was written by Secretary of State John Quincy Adams and President James Monroe in 1823. It was written in response to Monroe’s concerns about Spain reclaiming sovereignty in the Western Hemisphere. It was a statement on foreign policy that pledged that the United States would oppose attempts by European states to extend their political control into the Western Hemisphere. Monroe presented the document to Congress in December 1823. Some say that this doctrine should be called the Jefferson Doctrine as opposed to the Monroe Doctrine because Jefferson strongly influenced Monroe.
Monroe’s principal concern had been to make sure that European mercantilism not be reimposed on an area of increasing importance economically and ideologically to the United States. When, however, President John Tyler used the doctrine in 1842 to justify seizing Texas. The next time it was mentioned was in 1861 in hopes of avoiding the Civil War. The United States, said Seward, in order to divert attention from the impending crisis, should challenge supposed European interventions in the Western Hemisphere by launching a drive to liberate Cuba and end the last vestiges of colonialism in the Americas. President Lincoln turned down the idea.
(War of 1812 - 1815). The very next year in 1807 Great Britain decided that they were going to play the same game as France and made it illegal for France and all allies of France to trade with each other. In response to the childish games that France and Great Britain were playing the United States Congress passed laws to “[prohibit] U.S. vessels” from doing business with the European Nations (War of 1812 - 1815). In 1810 the United States decided that realistically this wasn 't exactly doing what it was suppose to so they opened trade back up with the European Nations on the condition that France and Great Britain

The United States was divided between whether to side with Britain or France. Many Americans wanted to side with the French, but others, including Alexander Hamilton, wanted to annul the alliance the United States had made with France, and side with Great Britain. George Washington, however, decided that it would be best to remain neutral, and therefore issued the Proclamation of Neutrality on April 22, 1793. The War of 1812
Historically, it is believed that the causes of large scale events and wars are often rooted in the outcomes of previous conflicts. The American Revolution, one of the largest most historically significant events of all time, was caused by a multitude of events. Specifically, many of the causes were in fact the results of past conflicts and ongoing tension, such as the French and Indian War and British taxation acts. Contrary to popular belief, the impact of American Revolution was not solely confined to the colonies and the British crown. Aside from leading to American independence, the American Revolution was a part of a larger global conflict, involving issues between Great Britain, France, and other foreign nations.

The Monroe Doctrine is one of the most influential foreign policies made by an American President in our nation’s history. It strongly defined the principle of American exclusivity and European non-interference in North and South America. In Europe, the end of the Napoleonic Wars in 1815 marked the disintegration of the Spanish empire in the New World. Between 1815 and 1822, Argentina, Venezuela, and Chile declared their independence, and broke away from colonialism. The Monroe administration recognized Argentina, Chile, Peru, Colombia and Mexico as independent colonies in 1822.
The Monroe Doctrine was a speech given in 1823 by James Monroe, the 5th president of the United States, to the U.S. Congress concerning European presence in the Western Hemisphere. Monroe was becoming continuously concerned about European influence in the region. While the primary audience for this message was Congress, the intended audience was all European powers, including Russia, and Latin America. The events in Latin America before and after the Spanish-American War will be used as an example of the imperial reach by the U.S. The United States, ironically, became an imperial power through its mission outlined in the Monroe Doctrine to end European colonialism and imperialism.
