In this powerful new work, drawing on countless primary sources, acclaimed historian Hugh Howard presents a gripping account of the conflict as James and Dolley Madison experienced it. Mr. and Mrs. Madison's War rediscovers a conflict fought on land and sea -- from the shores of the Potomac to the Great Lakes -- that proved to be a critical turning point in American history.
