President Harry Truman called it the "silliest damn war we ever had." Not long after the United States had gained its independence from Great Britain, the two nations went to war again, this time over disputes that could have been settled by diplomacy. Nevertheless, the conflict produced its share of heroic exploits, as well as the "Star Spangled Banner."
