Book Discussion - The Civil War of 1812: American citizens, British Subjects, Irish Rebels, & Indian Allies
Tuesday, October 30, 2012 from 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM (EDT)
In this deeply researched and clearly written book, historian Alan Taylor tells the riveting story of a war that redefined North America. During the early nineteenth century, Britons and Americans renewed their struggle over the legacy of the American Revolution. The Civil War of 1812 is a vivid narrative of an often brutal (and sometimes comic) war that reveals much about the tangled origins of the United States and Canada.
