Why Is The War Of 1812 Important

441 Words2 Pages

2,000 highly trained British soldiers died compared to only about 13 American soldiers. At this time the British were the military force but they made so many mistakes it was hard to believe, one example is that they forgot to bring ladders to climb up the ramparts. The history book publisher wants to take out The War of 1812 just so we can save money. The publisher doesn't think The War of 1812 is necessary to learn because it wasn't important and it didn't help shape our future. We should keep The War of 1812 in our textbooks because it is a show of respect for those who had fallen, if we don't keep the war in it will almost be like all the American soldiers did was for nothing because nobody will know how we got where we are today
