Searching for the Forgotten War - 1812 Canada

Front Cover
Xlibris Corporation, Feb 15, 2011 - History - 616 pages
The quest to write a geographical book leading up to the two-hundredth anniversary of this conflict, known as the War of 1812, that created two North American countries we enjoy today, began in 2006, with the goal to visit as many historical sites as possible. We started searching for roadside markers, plaques, monuments, cemeteries, the tombstones to the fallen, fortifications, battlefields and those who fought in this war, and to tell the readers the stories behind them. Searching for the Forgotten War 1812, was an experience that was more than we expected in terms of the wonderful people we met along the way.
