The War of 1812

This year marks the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812 (June 18, 1812–Feb. 17, 1815), a conflict fought between the United States and Great Britain primarily over British violations of U.S. maritime rights and the inspiration of our nation's most patriotic song, the Star Spangled Banner.
