War of 1812: Chronicle of America’s Wars
Diana Childress (au)
Hardcover (no d.j.)
On June 18, 1812 -- almost 30 years after gaining its independence from Great Britain -- the U.S. again declared war on Britain in response to Brit. attacks on U.S. ships. During these attacks, thousands of U.S. sailors were kidnapped and forced to join the Brit. navy. For 2-1/2 years, fierce battles raged between the Brit. and the Amer. on the North Amer. continent and at sea. The U.S. failed to conquer Canada and faced enormous losses when Brit. troops burned the White House and other parts of Wash., D.C. Yet the young country ultimately triumphed at sea, on the Great Lakes, and on land. Having won its independence not once, but twice, the U.S. gained international respect as a nation and secured its place as a developing world power. Illus.
