Let's get Mexico! Tacos and Burritos for America!
I think it's time for Mandison. The navy is built, the coast is safe and the coastal cities have no luck against it. Send the army in the north and conquer Canada. Mexico can wait, even 1900s is a good time to conquer it, as it will be weak. USA will have infatries while Mexico will still have rifles. Training an army at this point is a good idea, since the army will almost die in the canadian wars. A fresh army should be trained for the Carrabean. Moreover, it's time to get some banks in our economomy and start cashing in.
Oh and one last thing. Have you heared of a new philosopher in our lands, I think it's called Carl Marx? He empeaches against capitalism !
(Note: I'd like to see Marx or Lenin in the elections of 1816 )
It's too early for Marx, not to mention Lenin. They might come later. Also, not born in the US. Perhaps some imaginary American communist could emerge?
Did Napoleon actually try to invade Russia and lose his army to General Winter?
Mayhaps Marx could immigrate into the US in this alternate timeline? Some decades down the line of course, as of right now he is but a rowdy teenager.
Not born in the US. His son maybe.
I think everyone is itching for some action against the British.

His term will be done somewhere in the next 4 hours. Sorry for the lack of eloquence on this post.
War of 1812
With Madison sweeping the election, and the country urging the government to declare war on the imperial power of Britain, Madison gave the orders for the USS Constitution to blockade ships from entering or leaving Quebec.
Madison organizes National Security in order to prevent anti-war sentiment or British propoganda. This, historians would later say, lead the United States into the Industrial Era.
Unexpectedly, the British began bombarding the West coast where there was no naval defense.
Three years into the war, Americans begin making great progress into steel technology.
After the capture of Toronto at the loss of two cannon divisions, the famed Washington Division captures and burns Montreal to the ground at the loss of one cannon division.
Meanwhile, Baseball is urged to be invested in to create a national sport to better unify the nation that is split between war, peace, slavery, and position in the Napoleonic Wars.
In 1816, Napoleon's war was at a point of no return. He lost all his vassals, with some joining together to form large alliances to bring down Napoleon. For instance, Austria joined Spain; an odd move, as the Spanish Empire was nearly gone in the New World with the rise of Colombia.
Madison also began a colonization project of Hawaii.
Overall, the conquest of Canada is not going as quickly as would have been liked, and three cannon divisions have been lost, but Madison says he has total confidence that the war will be won.
Unfortunately, Madison said he will not run again in the next election. He will retire to Montpelier, to his tobacco plantation in Virginia.
