    The War of 1812 was in part an annexation attempt by America seeking to expand US territory into Canada. The fact that America was unable to do so is, in a sense, a great Canadian victory.

    On the downside, attempts by Native Americans to establish a country in the Midwest that would be recognized by a European power, failed.

    Lots more nuances.
