The War of 1812 Magazine

edited by Major John R. Grodzinski, from the Department of History, Royal Military College, Kingston, Ontario

The aim of the War of 1812 Magazine is to provide a variety of articles, book and other reviews, commentaries, documents and other material related to the War of 1812 – 14. This war was the only one fought between Great Britain and the United States in that period of North American history.

While popularly regarded as a minor scrap between American backwoodsmen and a handful of British soldiers supported by natives and Canadian militia, with the occasional encounter between fir-built vessels, the British-U.S. War of 1812 – 14 was a far ranging and complex conflict, involving campaigns and battles fought over a vast territory, from the Upper Great Lakes, through much of modern Michigan, Ontario, Quebec, upstate New York and the eastern seaboard of the continent from Halifax to the Gulf of Mexico, all of which were linked to events in Europe.

    1. this website is really cool and i absaloutly love it.

    2. Whats up this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!
