War of 1812 Bicentennial Article From Macleans Magazine

HERE is a link to the MACLEANS Magazine that talks about the War of 1812 from a Canadian perspective.  Well worth the read, especially for my fellow Americans.

Growing up in Washington State, I do not recall learning about the War of 1812 in my US History class.  I vaguely remember learning the date of the war in a list of wars, but that was about it.  That was many moons ago, I am wondering if that has changed in the public schools since I was once in it.

As one who enjoys sewing and wearing clothing of the 1812 era, I thought this was an appropriate article for people to read.   I am hoping to find an event that I can go to, all dressed up.
