An excellently thorough discussion of the importance of First Nations leadership during the War of 1812. Your infographics are concise, polished, aesthetically pleasing, and show a wonderful ability to consolidate the findings of your research in a clear and articulate manner. I especially like how point to the importance of First Nations involvement in the development and future of Canada’s shaping identity. Great work overall, keep up the deep research and analysis.
A very comprehensive and well-written dissection of the treaty agreements that resulted from the War of 1812. I particularly found your discussion of a potential British / Indigenous buffer state between Canada and the States interesting! With this in mind, and based on our reading of Sherman Alexie’s The Absolutely True Diaries of a Part-Time Indian this year, do you think that relationships between indigenous peoples and colonists have changed significantly since 1812? I know you mention that it seems as if they were treated poorly in the past, but I am wondering if situations have really improved all that much?
Thank you for your hard work! Keep digging deep into your research, inquiring, and guiding your own learning.
An interesting and clear dissection of the Battle of Queenston Heights. I really like the idea that the battle as a whole shows us that conflicts are not always decided based on who is winning in the outset, and that the power struggle between the Americans and British fluctuated consistently throughout the war. Overall solid work. I am intrigued by the idea that “people who lived during the time of the War of 1812 mainly valued power and land.” How might we come to know if this generalization is true, and if so, has this desire changed substantially since 1812?

An engaging narrative that helps add some perspective to what life must have been like during the time between the end of the American Revolution and the War of 1812. I have never considered that the Loyalists understood the Americans much more …
It is so amazing to see how interconnected revolutionary actions and ideas are during this time, and how conflicts on one side of the globe set off a chain reaction that either positively or negatively impacts others. I found this especially powerful in your discussion of how America was able to get out of debt and rise to power themselves. I have never really made that connection before, and it is one that I won’t forget. Thank you for teaching me something!
Your research is presented here clearly and concisely. I think you are right in inferring that the War of 1812 was detrimental in pre-Canadians moving towards Confederation, and feeling as if they were part of an independent group of people ou…
A truly in-depth demonstration of your learning — very engaging! You demonstrate the reflective skill of a young historian. Keep up the excellently detailed work, and continue challenging yourself to delve deep into your research and ask questions.
