War of 1812 - The Second American Revolution?

The War of 1812 is commonly referred to by historians as the "Second American Revolution." The United States was only 29 years old , and they were united enough to fight yet another war against the British.
       The Napoleonic Wars in Europe forced the British to enact trade restrictions and strict naval procedures on the Americans. It didnt take long for the actions of the British to anger the Americans so much that they declared War.
