The year was 1812, and the United States teetered once again on the brink of war with Great Britain. Caught in England's ongoing battle with France, the United States found its ports blockaded and its young sailors pressed into service aboard British vessels. War of 1812, Updated Edition tells of the young country's heroic campaign to beat back one of the most powerful military forces in the world - and to rid America of foreign powers once and for all. New box features give detailed coverage of such topics as the intent and results of the embargo on trade with Europe; the design and appearance of the nation's capital in 1812; and the displacement of Indians in the wake of the war.
