About That War of 1812

An obscure battle that probably saved the nation, told from several points of view. A look at the destruction of an American political party, and an analysis of the reasons behind a relatively unknown war in this episode. We are just a few days shy of the 210th anniversary of the War of 1812, the declaration of war by Congress was June 17th, 1812. And you know it because there are celebrations and events all across America.., Oh wait, there’s not.

The War of 1812 is a little understood war, known mostly for its ending battle in New Orleans and the song that originated from one of its battles. We look at the War of 1812 and one of the battles that was critical, but little talked about today. We talk about what happened that brought us to war? What were the significant battles? What don’t people know about it? and what does it all mean for America today including direct influences on today’s politics. 

From a previous episode, aired 10 years ago on the 200th anniversary, and worth revisiting.
