Well, considering y’all invaded us, burned our Capital city and tried to take us over, at which point we chased y’all down past Washington, burned YOUR White House in return, got bored and came home, I suppose you’re right.
Kinda funny that the single battle that is written and sung about (the Battle of New Orleans) y’all won cold and hard happened AFTER the Treaty of Ghent matters not, right?
Yeah, it MUST be revenge.
Yes, we lost the war but proved to the British empire that we were not a “flash in the pan” and won the treaty.
It was hardly Canada that burned down the White House, it was the British Empire.
For that matter, you appear to think that Americans believed that burning out the politicians was somehow a bad thing. :P
". . . we chased yall down past Washington, burned YOUR White House in return, ...
You would probably acquire a lot of volunteers along the way. As for your getting bored and going home, why be in a hurry to leave? You can get additional volunteers in VA, burn Raleigh NC, and pick up still more happy volunteers all the way to Myrtle Beach.
Why ever leave, take Myrtle Beach as compensation for you long march, make it a colony or something. It would be a lot better off with Mounties rather than their current police farce.
You’re right! I only heard about the Battle of new orleans in grade school- they left out the Northern incursions.
Nowdays they don’t teach anything.
You guys knew if you could hold that Canadian border it would pay great dividends, and it did.
