The Hartford Convention was held from December 15, 1814 to January 4, 1814 but, my textbook doesn’t include that. I think that when an event was in history is a key piece of information in a history textbook. Don’t you? To sum it up the Hartford Convention was a group of federalists, from New England, gathering in Hartford, CT who were protesting the War of 1812 and who just wanted the US to withdraw form it all together. They wanted to New England to withdraw from the US but, before they could go to Madison about that, they got word that the war had ended. After that, people involved in the Hartford Convention were laughed at, accused of treason and lost lost a lot of political power. Now I think My textbook did a pretty good job covering it, except for the fact that it didn’t include when the convention was. There really is no way to make a history textbook interesting to someone in middle school but, I think it would be better if it just gave the summary instead of the long paragraphs of info, most of which isn’t even that important. My textbook didn’t include a picture for the section on the Hartford Convention but, I think that I picture would be a really good thing to include, if I could find one on the websites that we are aloud to use. I probably get a picture of a group of federalists talking or of the capital building in Hartford, CT.
