Also true, but America won a lot of the major battles, (New Orleans, Ft. McHenry, Lake Erie, Lake Champlain, Horseshoe Bend, etc.)

ya im british so i got defensive.

The battle of New Orleans was techinically after the war was over. It is just weird that they did a battle after the war had ended. The communication was just THAT BAD back then. hard to imagine really.
