The White House Was Burning

ON This Date:

August 24, 1814 was a day that would go down in history due to a fire. It was the war of 1812 between the British and the United States. The British troops would burn the White House in Washington D.C. in retaliation of the Americans torching the city of York in Ontario Canada just 2 months prior.  Perhaps it may have been worst if the then president Madison and his wife had not fled to safety prior to the fire. 

When the British soldiers arrived at the White House they found it empty They promptly sat down and ate a meal made from food that had been left over. After eating the soldiers ransacked the place and set it all afire. One of the only pieces left was a portrait of President Washington that Dolley Madison had managed to take with her. The house had been so destroyed that the Madisons would not be able to serve the rest of their term from that residence.
