                                                            Washington is burned


During the war of 1812 general Ross captured the capital of the United States and the British because the Americans had burned their Canadian office building they burned the Capital for revenge. This caused the president to when he returned to vow to rebuild the capital building. The reconstruction of the capital took place at 1817. When they rebuilt the capital they added two more sections to the building. I think that because the capital was burned down caused the American soldiers to fight harder which caused us to seek peace with Britain.

    Why did they want revenge?

    With the American soldiers fighting harder, why do you think that in the end they sought out peace with Britain instead of continuing to fight.

      All the articles I read said that both sides saw that the war they were fighting was pointless, and why continue a fight that does nothing for you.
