The War of 1812 was a military conflict between Great Britan and the United States. It lasted roughly two and a half years, and was not an utter bloodbath, nor did it affect anything economically or territorial. Despite there not being a true victor of The War of 1812, the Americans proved to European nations that America was it’s own striving nation, and able to sustain foreign attack. Besides the two large nations, the only losers were the Native Americans residing east of the Mississipi River such as the Shawnee, Potawatomi, and Ojibwa Tribes. In the pivotal years of America’s development, all that the Americans wanted was to expand west, this led to Native American repulsion towards the white settlers.
Vimy Ridge was considered Canada’s greatest victories. This is the time when the country came out from Britain’s shadow and was capable of doing great things as their own country. Canadian soldiers earned respect and a reputation of effectiveness and a tough army. On April 9th 1917 the Canadian army were ordered to attack Vimy Ridge which was located in Northern France in the pas-de-Calais region. Near the border of Belgium, is a village called Vimy which was equipped with Barbed wires and machine guns. To attack this difficult position, Canadian troops had to carefully plan and practice their attack on France. In order to provide a wide range of firepower in the war they were given specialist roles as machine gunners, and grenade-throwers.
The War of 1812 was a war fought between the United States and Great Britain in which the United States won and defeated Britain, remianing independent from Birtish rule. The war started in 1812 and lasted until 1815 with the signing of the Treaty of Ghent. Some of the most famous and important battles fought during the War of 1812 were the Battle of New Orleans, the Battle of Lake Erie and the Battle of Fort Meigs.
Canada has had several things that have made it a good country to live in. In the first half of the twentieth century, Canada fought in many battles during the World Wars that had a positive impact on the world. On top of that, there are many Canadians that made notable changes in Canada and the rest of the world. Lastly, Canadians have created technologies that are very important to the way we live today. After looking at these factors, it can be said that Canada is a country that its citizens should be proud of.
The war of 1812 was yet another war that the United States got caught up with. There were several reasons as to what caused this war to begin. Let 's go back to the year of 1806 when France declared it to be illegal for “all neutral trade with Great Britain” (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 first point of proof of this is how the Canadians helped with Somme. This battle is remembered because of the over 2.2 million soldiers killed, wounded, or missing over the full 2 battles (Christie, 1). Canadians (and Newfoundlanders) usually fought alongside the British and they helped take this land with their courage. This lasted from July 1st to November 18th (Gootz, 7-8). Canadians also played a big part in taking Ypres. This was the first ever battle where gas was introduced. It was brought by the Germans and swept the French trenches (Christie, 9). The French retreated and the Canadians had to hold down the trenches. Germans attacked when the gas cleared and the position was held by The Royal Highlanders from Montréal. Because of Canada’s selfishness, they helped win this battle. “We have shown that even in trench warfare it is possible to mystify and mislead the enemy.” -Sir Arthur Currie (World War 1). The most vital and important battle that gained Canada respect was The Battle of Vimy Ridge. Canada played the biggest part in taking this area since they fought alone. The British and French had already attempted to take this area, and although it was valiant they still lost. This put weight on Canada’s soldiers. On April 9th, 1917, 1000 guns opened fire on German positions. 15000 Canadians attacked the Germans and after four days and 10000 casualties, Canada single handedly took Vimy Ridge (Vimy Ridge, 1). This victory gained the nation immense respect from the rest of the world. All of these battles were greatly impacted by the Canadians and without some of them (Vimy Ridge in particular) Canada may not have gained any respect from other

The American Revolution was a successful revolt of the colonies and their mother country in a fight for their independence. It was successful, because the new independent country known as the United States of America was formed, and can still be seen today. However, the revolution goes very in depth on how it happened.
An explosive controversy of the early 1840s involved the Maine boundary dispute. The St. Lawrence River is icebound several months of the year, as the British, remembering the War of 1812, well knew. They were determined, as a defensive precaution against the Yankees, to build a road westward from Halifax to Quebec. But the proposed route ran through disputed territory, claimed also by Maine under the misleading peace treaty of 1783. Lumberjacks from both Maine and Canada entered the disputed land of the Aroostook River valley. Ugly fights flared up, and both sides summoned the local militia. This was known as the Aroostook War and occurred in 1839.
When war erupted in 1914, it caused a patriotic fervor in English Canada. Volunteers clustered to recruiting stations and everyone got into the war effort at home, determined to contribute to the British Empire 's battle in Europe.
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). Tecumseh, the Shawnee war chief, played a crucial role in leading the
The significance of this relatively small battle was that the British have established a strong presence in New France, now known as Quebec. They defeated France in the Battle of the Plains of Abraham, and took control of New France. This led to the power of the British in North America. The defeat of New France made the British gain confidence in it 's colonies such as Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, and New York. This encouraged Great Britain for greater independence, leading to the control of what now is the country of Canada (and in other cases the United States of America). The British victory and the French defeat at Quebec in 1759 had a significant effect, effecting the size, culture, and individuality of Canada. Such effects being the increase
Thirty years of war by J.L ganatstien, is an article that represents and emphasizes the fact that Canada became a strong, powerful and a united country after the harsh and the deadly conflicts of the two world wars. Canadians and the ally’s and all other country and knew by the end of the war that what Canada was capable of doing by itself, which was demonstrated through every Canadian soldier/officers who fought during the wars and helped other country to win wars by outstanding thinking strategies.
While Canadians are consistently stereotyped as polite, peaceful and accepting individuals, Canadian history demonstrates its evident use of war and rebellion. Canadians fought against First Nations’ tribes, the French, the Americans and against Axis powers in the First and Second World War to achieve various levels of independence and peace for Canada and its ideals. Wars create distinct symbols, customs and of course art work, resulting in a uniquely Canadian culture. During the Second World War, Canadian art culture flourished with the creation of an official art program designed to document the Canadian war effort overseas, inspiring a new generation of artists and art movements. However, secondary research provides little information on
