1812 - 1814
America's Forgotten War


The War of 1812 was a conflict fought between the United States and its Indigenous allies, and the United Kingdom, its dependent colonies in North America, Indigenous allies, and Spain. The conflict formally began when the United States declared war on 18 June 1812, and officially ended with the 24 December 1814 Treaty of Ghent.

 

Laura Secord was a Canadian heroine of the War of 1812. She is known for having walked 20 miles out of American-occupied territory in 1813 to warn British forces of an impending American attack. Her contribution to the war was little known during her lifetime, but since her death she has been frequently honoured in Canada.
