The Treaty of Ghent was signed in Ghent Belgium, on December 24th, 1814. Great Britain and the United States formed this treaty in an attempt to end the War of 1812. A discussion on the subject of a peace agreement occurred the previous year encouraging the bunch to meet in Europe to work out the details. The group drafted a treaty of 15 initial points. The British only agreed to nine of those, but then two more were added. The final 11 assets became known as the Treaty of Ghent. War prisoners were to be returned to their home countries. Hostile actions towards the First Nations were to be terminated and Britain was not to arm the Aboriginals for attacks against the US. The Treaty of Ghent was not officially put into effect until it was ratified by the U.S. Senate unanimously on February 18, 1815. Overall I chose this as an event for the timeline due to the impact the treaty had on the war and the problems it resolved. After the Treaty of Ghent was put into action, the war of 1812 ended and American-held areas of Upper Canada were returned to British control. The war had created conflict between Canada and the US and the end of it resolved a lot of them for the time being.
I rate this site a 4 as it was very helpful and provided information that was easy to understand. I believe it was a reliable site as it not only has no advertisements on the page but also has links at the bottom on the page to other helpful sites.
I would rate Wikipedia in general a 2 as I always find information on the site though it is sometimes very limited. I wouldn’t trust Wiki as a completely reliable site as it not only has advertisement littering the screen but it also a site that I have been told many times throughout high school of its reliability.
