Documenting the War of 1812: Major Battles of the War of 1812
Battles between the United States and Great Britain and its provinces in Canada saw only temporary gains and losses of territory for both sides. At the conflicts end, the only permanent change was the loss of land and autonomy of the Native people who had fought on each side. Period maps and illustrations and contemporary photographs bring to life the events that led up to the War of 1812, the battles fought, the heroes created, and the war's lasting legacy for both the United States and Canda. A great introduction to the War of 1812 for young readers.
