The 4GWAR blog is pleased to announce the return, starting Monday, January 20, of the weekly feature

THIS WEEK in the War of 1812

The final full year of America’s first declared war was a significant one … continued frontier battles with Native Americans…

the last big battles along the Niagara frontier … naval contests won and lost …

the rise to prominence of future presidents Andrew Jackson and Zachary Taylor …

the widening British blockade of U.S. ports … Washington is taken and burned while Baltimore resists under the Star Spangled Banner.
