9780060531133: 1812: The War That Forged a Nation

Although frequently overlooked between the American Revolution and the Civil War, the War of 1812 tested a rising generation of American leaders; unified the United States with a renewed sense of national purpose; and set the stage for westward expansion from Mackinac Island to the Gulf of Mexico. USS Constitution, "Old Ironsides," proved the mettle of the fledgling American navy; Oliver Hazard Perry hoisted a flag boasting, "Don't Give Up the Ship"; and Andrew Jackson's ragged force stood behind it's cotton bales at New Orleans and bested the pride of British regulars. Here are the stories of commanding generals such as America's double-dealing James Wilkinson, Great Britain's gallant Sir Isaac Brock, Canada's heroine farm wife Laura Secord, and country doctor William Beanes, whose capture set the stage for Francis Scott Key to write "The Star-Spangled Banner." During the War of 1812, the United States cast off its cloak of colonial adolescence and -- with both humiliating and glorious moments -- found the fire that was to forge a nation.

This P.S. edition features an extra 16 pages of insights into the book, including author interviews, recommended reading, and more.

From AudioFile:

What do you know about the war whose legacy is the Star Spangled Banner? Who were injured, and what were they fighting for? George C. Scott narrates this set of tapes, presenting the background and issues of the War of 1812. Letters, journal entries and treaties are interspersed throughout the narrative and read by different people. Some of their voices are more audible than others. Nonetheless, Knowledge Products provides a fascinating and painless way to learn history, suitable for high school and up. M.B.K. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
