The War of 1812 was a critical moment in the history of North America. At the centre of this struggle was a colourful cast of heroes, villains, strategists, and dupes. Experience 1812 through the eyes of key players and their personal stories: the bold Sir Isaac Brock, the determined Laura Secord, the stalwart James Fitzgibbons, the traitor Joseph Willcocks, and the fearless Shawnee warrior chief Tecumseh.
