The Anglo-American War of 1812 presented the factories with their single greatest challenge. British-allied Indian war parties destroyed or captured the Great Lakes trading houses, while a British blockade and an attack on Washington, DC, starved the rest of supplies. However, the factory system never displayed its relevance so clearly as during the war. Many factories served as supply and recruitment centers for American-allied warriors, or as the nuclei of refugee centers. The system thus helped ensure that several thousand Choctaws, Osages, and other Native American men would fight as American allies. However, the United States' decisive defeat of their Indian adversaries, particularly Tecumseh's confederates and the Red Stick Creeks, called into question its need for Indian allies and thus for Indian trading houses in future conflicts.
