Actually, they burned the White House also. Not sure you can claimed to have "whipped" the other side when they march into your capital and burn the residence of your head of state. American troops, on the other hand, never got close to Buckingham Palace, or to London for that matter. That war was between the British and French. We Americans were a minor annoyance, and British public opinion didn't support prolonging the war just to thoroughly thrash the US.
