The war only lasted two years but it was a devastating time in the history of a young United States. During that period, in August 1814, Washington DC, was all but destroyed. If you have ancestors who were engaged in this conflict, you already know that there is nowhere near as much information about it as there is for the American Revolution or the Civil War. To learn more as a basis for your ancestral research, the War of 1812-1814 web site is loaded with links to articles, photographs, music, a video, a bibliography, and other informative materials.
