Because of the outbreak of war from Napoleonic France, Britain decided to blockade the trade between the United States and the French.

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.
