War of 1812. U.S. declares war on Britain over British interference with American maritime shipping and westward expansion.

1812 · War of 1812

Because of the outbreak of war from Napoleonic France, Britain decided to blockade the trade between the United States and the French. The US then fought this action and said it was illegal under international law. Britain supplied Native Americans who raided settlers living on the frontier and halting expansion westward. In 1814, one of the British raids stormed into Washington D.C. burning down the capital. Neither the Americans or the British wanted to continue fighting, so negotiations of peace began. After Treaty of Ghent was signed, Unaware of the treaty, British forces invaded Louisiana but were defeated in January 1815.

Name Meaning

English (Kent):

variant of the now rare or extinct Kent name Sudd, with post-medieval excrescent -s, unless Sudd is in fact a shortened form of Sudds. Sudd may arise from Middle English sudde ‘mud, bog’ (Old English sydde), though the expected dialect form in Kent would be sedde.

alternatively, a variant of the northeastern England name Suddes, which may have reached Kent through the coastal trade down eastern England. Suddes is probably also a variant of Sudd, with post-medieval excrescent -s and may be a topographic name from Middle English sudde ‘mud, bog’ (Old English sydde) but the expected form in northeastern England would be sidde. Alternatively, Sudd might be from Middle English shudde, sudde (Old English scydde) ‘small house, hovel’ or ‘shed’ (for animals), ‘pigsty’ (see Shedd ), but again the expected form in northeastern England would be sid(de) or shidde.
