In a 2 to 3 pages paper, analyze the circumstances surrounding the War of 1812. Discuss whether it is true (as has been alleged) that the war itself was an attempt to take advantage of the British when they were involved with the French in Europe. Is this an accurate assessment of the war? Support your conclusions using facts and evidence. Then discuss whether or not using this maneuver against the British would have been wrong in the context of the events happening at that time. Remember to use supporting citations from the textbook and online lectures.
The response must include a reference list. Using one-inch margins, double-space, Times New Roman 12 pnt font and APA style of writing and citations.
