James Madison and the War of 1812

In this discussion you will consider the position of James Madison in regards to the War of 1812. From his time as Secretary of State in the Jefferson Adminstration, Madison had been dealing with the difficult diplomatic task of avoiding war with Great Britain. Once he became president, he remained personally opposed to war, but events and Congress forced his hand.

Required Readings:

  • Refer to section 11.3 -"MADISON" of your textbook for this discussion.


Focus Questions:

Answer the following questions in your initial posting, which should be written in essay style.

  • Why did Madison want to avoid a war when Britain continually interferred with American shipping?
  • What was the impact of the war on the American people, particular those in New England?
  • The war is normally viewed as an American victory - was it really? Why or why not?

Directions:

For the first part of this assignment, you must make an initial posting of two to three paragraphs in the discussion forum. Your initial posting must fully answer all of the focus questions. It must also include source citations throughout, as well as a Works Cited at the very end. These in-text source citations and your Works Cited must illustrate to the reader which sources you used in writing your posting and what sources influenced your thinking. After you have submitted your initial posting, you must submit response postings to at least two different classmates' postings. These response posts should be approximately a paragraph long and substantive in content (provide a response and/or critique, along with an explanation of your response/critique to your classmate--that is, your responses must be more than "Good job, So-and-So."). If you make direct reference to a source in your response posting, you must again provide source citations and a Works Cited. 

For all postings (initial and response), remember to proofread before you submit. Your postings should follow the conventions of grammar and spelling, and they should be written in past tense. As your discussions are meant to prepare you for the essay assignments, please use academic language and do not use first person (such as "I," "we," "our," etc.). Also, again--cite any sources you used in writing your postings.
