Nah you guys won the war kinda, but America didn't lose it badly. That war led the US into economic stagnation. We also had the most causalities compared to Canada and Britain. The war would have probably been very different if Britain wasn't dealing with Napoleon. I think America just takes great pride in the war because it was our first war as 'America,' and we didn't get completely shit on. We also didn't lose any territory after signing the Treaty of Ghent.
