Chapter 11 Section 4

  1. 1. CHAPTER 11 Section 4 Notes
  2. 2. JAMES MADISON TAKES OVER  JAMES MADISON, JEFFERSON’S secretary of state, won the presidential election of 1808.  In 1810, Congress passed a new law opening trade with all nations. It allowed the President to reinstate the embargo if FRANCE or BRITAIN again interfered with American ships.  The British, however, continued their attacks on American ships. In 1811, MADISON cut off trade with Britain. The two countries moved closer to war.

  4. 4. NATIVE AMERICAN RESISTANCE  The British-American struggle on the seas was linked to ongoing conflicts with NATIVE AMERICANS in the OHIO VALLEY and NORTHWEST TERRITORY. The British in CANADA supplied weapons to NATIVE AMERICANS who were struggling to keep settlers off their land.  One of the leaders in this region was the SHAWNEE chief TECUMSEH.  In 1810, TECUMSEH and the U.S. military clashed in the BATTLE OF TIPPECANOE in present-day Indiana. Many soldiers and warriors died. The battle marked the beginning of the long, deadly war between NATIVE AMERICANS and white settlers on the frontier.

  6. 6. BATTLE OF TIPPECANOE
  7. 7. A CALL FOR WAR  A growing number of AMERICANS called for war against GREAT BRITAIN. They were known as WAR HAWKS.  Anti-British feelings were strongest in the WEST and SOUTH. WESTERNERS believed there could be no peace on the frontier until the BRITISH were pushed out of NORTH AMERICA. Meanwhile, SOUTHERNERS wanted to obtain FLORIDA from SPAIN, which was BRITAIN’S ally.  MADISON soon gave in to the demands of the WAR HAWKS, and in June 1812, he asked Congress to declare war against GREAT BRITAIN.
