Question and answer
Why were the New Englanders against going to war with Britain?
ew England opposed the conflict with political, economic, and the religious affairs that came with the war of 1812. It all started back when France and Great Britain were continuously at war with each other. America set an embargo on their shipping. [ The embargo had a reverse effect than intended. Instead of bringing Britain and France to their senses, it depressed American sea-borne commerce.
No place suffered more than New England, where a single-minded pursuit of seafaring formed the basis of the economy. Banks closed; mariners and sailors were thrown out of work; poorhouses could not handle the need; and commerce dropped off as much as 90 percent. New England politicians, editors, and merchants protested against the embargo. New England did not forget that embargo, and that's when the strong opposition began its toll. Read more: ]
