“Having made their stand at Brentwood the newly fledged rebels appear to have dispersed back to their homes to organize the uprising in their own localities.” ~ from #englandarise by #julietbarker 📚 #history #britishhistory #englishhistory #peasantrebellion #thepeoplethekingandthegreatrevoltof1381 #boo#books #books #booksbooksbooks #booksofinstagram #booksofig #bookdragon #bookstagram #booktoread #bookstagrammer #writerreads #smjcurrentlyreading

Unleashing Hell Often disregarded in US History is The War of 1812 fought between the United States of America and Great Britain and her allies. The conflict began for a multitude of reasons, but primarily can be attributed to the British impressment of American merchant sailors during the Napoleonic Wars. The Americans sought to take advantage of Europe’s chaotic state and began trading with both sides. However both Great Britain and the French Empire viewed this action as participation in the war on behalf of the other side and had considered declaring war on the United States of America. Warhawks in the U.S. Congress at the time sought out any reason to declare war on Great Britain, however this was not the ideology of the majority of Americans, especially those who resided in New England. In fact, after war had been declared in June of 1812 the U.S. had found it hard to raise an Army due to New England’s close trade ties with Great Britain, one of the attributing factors to the lack of success the Americans had against the defense oriented British army. Ending in 1815, the war is ultimately regarded as a draw, with neither side really gaining anything of real importance. One can argue that the U.S. gained more confidence in the fact that it was able to go toe-to-toe with the British (a major European power); however besides that point the American forces were unable to secure any of the Canadian lands they viewed with interest. This display was created by Cody Heeley and contains figures from John Jenkins Designs. The scene depicts the British First Regiment of Foot, otherwise known as “The Royal Scots,” receiving canister fire from American cannons placed on a ridge. Although mighty in number, the British forces fell victim to an onslaught on American guns and would have to sound the retreat. What do you think of this display?
