>>601323 Are you saying that because he started to retreat in october? You're trying to sound very clever, but you know nothing. Napoleon wasn't defeated yet when he started to retreat. He did so because he didn't want to chase the Russian anymore. Then cold and starvation caused by winter devasted his armies during the retreat, which is what really defeated him.
You seem to dumbly assimilate retreat to being pushed back by the enemy, but warfare is much more complicated than that
Not directly related to winning or losing, but I once read somewhere, (don't remember where) that the single biggest lasting effect of the War of 1812 was how it forced America to start developing domestic industry instead of continually importing stuff from Europe.
Is there anything to this? Any sources I could read up more on the phenomena?
>>601375 >>601420 Y'all nigga wrong Neither the winter nor the Russian army defeated the French Diseases contracted by Napoleonic troops through fucking Polish women before the Russian campaign started is what decimated the French army. Poland accidentally defeated its greatest ally as well as its only chance to remain independent through the 19th century Lmao
>>601038 This wasn't the only goal, nor was it the most important one. The US wanted the Brits to stop kidnapping American merchants and enlisting them in the British Navy. The British never did it again.
>>601820 That had already stopped before the war started.
>>601459 We'd stopped trading with them beofre hand.
Jefferson, in ANOTHER example of his absolute incompetence as a leader, stopped trade with england.
New England damn near seceded over this, and the lack of local support is part of the reason the invasion of canada failed-a longer, shittier invasion route was taken to avoid agitating New England further.
>>601401 The Indian nation was a plan being formed by tecumseh and his chiefs, not the British governments. The government would encourage this plan because it was a deciding factor for many native troops in which nation they were to fight for. If the empire truly held intentions of a free native land then they would have dealt with the indians far better than they had in the 1860s-90s. The dream of a Indian nation was solely an Indian idea and stating that the failure to form such a state means victory for the USA is laughable.
