French & Indian War

It wasn't until 1756 that war was officially declared between the French and British. The military activity that year and the following was relatively inconclusive, though the French generally had the upper hand, capturing Fort Oswego on Lake Ontario and Fort William Henry. In 1758 the tide began to turn and the British started to take the upper hand. Peace was not resolved until 1764.

Revolutionary War

General Washington led the Americans across the Delaware River on Christmas Eve. On Christmas Day, the Continental Army won an arousing victory at the Battle of Trenton. It was the American's first major victory during our fight for independence. The war would last until 1781, when Cornwallis surrendered at Yorktown.

War Of 1812

The British bombardment of Fort McHenry began at 5:00 a.m. on the morning of September 13th 1814, a young lawyer named Francis Scott Key watched the red glare of the British rockets, the bombs bursting in air over the Fort and wrote a poem about the "Star Spangled Banner" that was still flying over the fort after a siege of three days and nights.

Mexican-American War

During the Battle of Churubusco, some of the fiercest fighting of the war, the Mexicans were once again unable to halt the American advance. Soon afterwards, the Mexicans seeked a truce to end hostilities and the war. Peace failed and the war continued until General Scott took control of Mexico City.

The Civil War
