187 Things You Should Know about the War of 1812

An Easy Question-and-Answer Guide

Long overshadowed by the American Revolution and the Civil War, the War of 1812 remains a largely forgotten conflict. Its origins as part of the larger Napoleonic wars layered complex issues that to this day make the conflict difficult to understand. The bicentennial of the War of 1812 is now upon us. With an engaging question-and-answer format, this book offers a concise and informative introduction to the War of 1812, clearing much of the fog that surrounds it.

Donald R. Hickey is a professor of history at Wayne State College. He has written widely on the War of 1812, including the books The War of 1812: A Forgotten Conflict; The War of 1812: A Short History; and, as coauthor, The Rockets' Red Glare: An Illustrated History of the War of 1812 and The War of 1812 in the Chesapeake: A Reference Guide to Historic Sites in Maryland, Virginia, and the District of Columbia, the last two also published by Johns Hopkins.

" 187 Things You Should Know about the War of 1812 is a choice pick for public, high school, and even college library collections due to its concise, reader-friendly format."

"The book is illustrated with paintings, drawings, and maps to aid the student in understanding what events and battles took place and their significance towards ending the conflict."
