The Era of Good Feelings

After the war was over, a new president came in, his name was James Monroe. This was known as the era of good feelings.

Even though the war was over, there were still a few issues with Canada that needed to be addressed. These issues were with the Great Lakes.


The Rush-Bagot Agreement took care of these problems. They decided to limit navies on the lakes and set boundaries for fishing. The Canadians and the Americans hugged it out, and all was well...except for in the South and a little place known as Florida....
