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.
