With minor exceptions, the United States then kept its distance from the European war until 1812, fighting mainly with Indians on its western and southern frontiers. But in 1812 the Americans ended five years of uneasy negotiation by declaring war on Great Britain, invading Canada, battling Indians deemed to be allied with Britain, and conducting a series of maritime battles in the Great Lakes, the Atlantic, and the Gulf of Mexico. They also suffered the torching of Washington and the invasion of Maine before the European war ground to a halt in 1814.

But outside of crises and authorized public assemblies they had until then generally avoided anything like the self-initiated parade of February 1848, if only because royal officials could take the very fact of their organized assembly as evidence that they were visibly violating the legal ban on workers' coalitions. As the revolutionary regime settled into place, popular militias emerged from the organizations of workers and revolutionaries that had lurked in Lyon's political shadows. Political associations likewise multiplied, some of them new and some of them simply transforming clandestine cells or informal drinking clubs into legal entities.

But dissident organizations and their parliamentary allies fought back. Sometimes they actually won. In 1824, for example, Parliament conceded ground by repealing the Combination Laws that it had enacted in 1799 to suppress workers' associations; it thereby partially legalized public activity by trade unions.
