In Full Glory Reflected - Discovering the War of 1812 in the Chesapeake

Samenvatting

All but forgotten by Americans, the War of 1812 (1812-1815) was a dramatic watershed for the young, groundbreaking United States Republic. Ill-prepared to fight the powerful English nation, the U.S. struggled through three years of conflict but emerged more unified with new patriotic symbols like the Star-Spangled Banner. Much of the fighting occurred in the Chesapeake region and this new book, In Full Glory Reflected , uncovers its gripping stories of devastating raids, heroic defense, gallant privateers, fugitive slaves, and threatened lands. The historic tales unfold with a lively narrative, well over a hundred vivid illustrations, and clear maps to follow the action. In addition, a travel section provides a rich guide for adventurers who want to step back 200 years and explore the tidewater world where the war was fought. In Full Glory Reflected is an enchanting invitation to travel the Star - Spangled Banner National Historic Trail and discover the amazing world of our ancestors.
