Overview

REDISCOVER THE FORGOTTEN WAR From the creation of "The Star Spangled Banner" to Uncle Sam, the War of 1812 left a lasting legacy. The true story of that war is largely forgotten today. This book sets out to explore America's Second War of Independence in the Chesapeake Bay region from today's perspective. Along the way you will meet War of 1812 re-enactors, salty sailors aboard the Pride of Baltimore II, archaeologists and backyard historians, and even a man who makes his living portraying President James Madison. Visit Fort McHenry, tour Baltimore's Star Spangled Banner Flag House and dig for artifacts on remote battlefields. In a journey that's part history, part travelogue-with a little current events mixed in-rediscover the lively past of the War of 1812 as it comes to life once again.
