The war of 1812 was extremely important because the Americans design a huge American flag and if after the battle the flag "was still there" than that means we won. This guy named Francis Scott Key went on the British ship so he could negotiate with the British so they could trade prisoners. But then he got stuck on a British ship and he wrote in his journal a little poem that the Americans turned into the national Anthem. And now we still sing the National Anthem today.
