Wars at Home: America Forms an Identity (1812-1820)

About The Book

By the beginning of the 1800s, America was a young country led by people who were ready to fight to defend American rights on the seas and at home. They were eager to teach Europe's older nations a lesson, and they wanted to add to America's land. America fought the War of 1812 as well as a war in Florida. The US came out of these wars stronger than ever— and the people of the United States were ready for America to grow still bigger.
