The real names and personalities of the characters were brought out in The Great Gatsby film, whereas Midnight in Paris used different characters to bring the novel to life. Both films were very similar to the novel with the two main characters from both films being selfish and with the characters being alike.

Accordingly, the United States moved quickly to mount an offensive against Canada. The plan was aimed at separating Upper Canada (Ontario) from the Northwest, thus cutting off the Shawnees, Potawatomi, and other pro-British tribes from British support. Unfortunately, the move ended in disaster for American forces. By the fall of 1812, one American force had surrendered at Detroit, another had been defeated in
It is also known as Pontiac’s War, it took place from 1763-1766. The Ohio River Valley is where the battle was taken place.

In the movie however, she had dark brown hair and green eyes. Another example of this evidence is that in the first movie, Luke, son of Hermes and antagonist throughout the series, was described as having blond hair and blue eyes. In the first movie, he had brown hair and brown eyes. Now all of these points may sound superficial and critical but directors say that they follow the movie as accurately as possible.

The French and the British both wanted to dominate the Allegheny River and the Monongahela River. These rivers were used to provide trade routes for commerce.The French had constructed a number of forts in this region to strengthen their claim on their territories. In 1754 the fighting between the French and British began because the British wanted to settle colonies in the Ohio River Valley. The spark of the war was when General George Washington led an army against the French at Fort Necessity, but were defeated. Britain then declared war on the French.
The War of 1812 was a significant conflict with broad consequences, particularly for the native inhabitants of North America. During the years before the war, the United States began their expansion, creating the destruction of many Native American villages and homes. Due to these actions, during the war, many but not all tribal nations sided with the British because they thought it would stop American expansion. In all, more than two dozen nations participated in the war. In addition to the Lower Great Lakes Indians, led by Tecumseh, and Southern Indians, the Mohawks fought under Chief John Norton to hold onto their lands in southern Quebec and eastern Ontario (Fixico).
While Pontiac’s war was to be solely an indigenous people war, behind the indigenous was a stealthy force stimulating them to battle. Pontiac and his followers were in a large measure substance in the hands of French Missionaries and traders mostly those of the Mississippi. The dealers from the British colonies were many ways guilty of homicide and bulgary; they corrupted the Indians with rum and with few exceptions cheated and made them pay more than they should have. The loss of lives and the demolition of properties down the border during 1763-1764 were mainly in the nature of discernment for wrongdoings committed against the
The French and Indian War, or the Seven Years War, began in 1754, as a result of conflict over territory and trade in North America. As both countries conquered the new land, letting their civilians settle there as colonists with the sole purpose of providing money for their homeland, they encountered the Ohio Valley; land that was assured to contribute to each of their imperialist motives. During the war where French troops allied with the native Americans against Britain, the laws given to the British colonies were left unmonitored, and the colonists evaded the strict taxation and rules against trading with other countries. However, when the war ended in 1763, resulting in a British victory, Britain was left a multitude of problems. This included the great national debt of approximately 122 million British pounds.
There were multiple causes of the war, Britain’s restrictions of U.S trade by the Orders in Council, the British navy capturing American seamen and forcing them to serve on the behalf of the British, and America’s desire for expansion. The U.S decided to attack Canada but they suffered a humiliating defeat after Sir Isaac Brock and Tecumseh’s forces forced them
The War of 1812 has been referred to as a victorious “Second War for Independence,” and used to define Canadian identity, but the British only remember 1812 as the year Napoleon marched to Moscow. This is not surprising. In British eyes, the conflict with America was an annoying sideshow. The Americans had stabbed them in the back while they, the British, were busy fighting a total war against the French Empire, directed by their most inveterate enemy. For a nation fighting Napoleon Bonaparte, James Madison was an annoying irrelevance.

That 's how the war started. The war of 1812 occurred in three major areas: the Atlantic Ocean, the US-Canadian frontier and the Gulf Coast of the United States. At sea, both countries attacked its enemy 's merchant 's ships using its warships while Britain blocked the Atlantic Coast of the United States. Having most of its forces tied down in Europe, Britain employed a defensive strategy in the upper and lower provinces of Canada. Their earlier defeat of the uncoordinated US troops proved that conquering Canada would be more challenging than anticipated.
The French and Indian War ended in 1763 after nine years of fighting. When the Peace Conference ended in 1763, England was given Canada and Florida. The removal of the French and Spanish strengthened American colonies(History). After the French and Indian War , parliament attempted to force colonist to pay a tax to contribute to the defense of the new North America (Britannia). In the following years American Colonists became angry with being taxed without their consent and a group of colonists created the Sons of Liberty to fight against these taxes.
