Reseña del editor:

In Canada, the War of 1812 has taken on various meanings. In the immediate aftermath, alongside the Loyalist narrative of fleeing from the defeat of the British at the hands of American rebels, the War of 1812 provided a sort of redemption for those still loyal to British North America. From the American perspective, the War of 1812 is merely one in a host of small scale wars in North America and the events of 18121815 are mostly forgotten in the collective memory of the United States. The authors of 1812: A Guide to the War and its Legacy believe that the War of 1812 was an important event in North American history with lasting consequences for Canadians, Americans, and the First Nations. This is the latest guidebook published by the Laurier Centre for Military Strategic and Disarmament Studies that uses modern satellite images, archival records, paintings, and contemporary photographs to offer enough information to allow for a basic understanding of what happened and why it happened that way. 1812: A Guide to the War and its Legacy is organized into two parts. First, an historical section that seeks to place events in their strategic, operational, and human context. Second, there is a tour section that is designed to introduce and guide readers to key locations of war and memory, and offer an explanation of the fluid memory that has evolved over the last 200 years. The War of 1812 has been forgotten, re-imagined, and invented anew many times and the itineraries of the guide illustrate that ever-changing process of commemoration.
