War Hawks Address

Introduction
In the months leading up to the War of 1812, a group of younger congressmen called for war with Britain. Known as the War Hawks, this new generation of political leaders had come of age after the winning of independence and were ardent nationalists. The War Hawks spoke passionately of defending the national honor against British insults, but also had more practical goals in mind notably the annexation of Canada. Their views were expressed in a speech in the House of Representatives by Felix Grundy of Tennessee.  To British interference with American shipping, Grundy added the aim of adding Canada (British territory) and Florida (owned by Spain) to the United States thereby expanding the Union and undermining the remaining power of Indian tribes.

Read the attached document and answer the following questions:
Why do these congressmen want war?
How does Grundy feel about the natives?
