War of 1812

The War of 1812 (18121815) was a conflict fought between the United States, the United Kingdom, and their respective allies. Historians in Britain often see it as a minor theatre of the Napoleonic Wars; in the United States and Canada, it is seen as a war in its own right.

John Green, the author of The Fault In Our Stars, teaches you about the War of 1812. The war lasted until 1815 and it did not settle very much. Mr. Green will take you on a journey through the "avoidable war"; how the United States made little progress with Canada and the burning of the White House. He also talks about how the Native Americans got the short stick. Over all this is a great quick overview of the War of 1812 that will leave you wanting more John Green, and history too.
