Description


On June 18, 1812, the Americans declared war on Britain and attacked the nearest British target, Canada. Although outnumbered ten to one, Canadian volunteers in the War of 1812 successfully defended their homes and towns from the skilled American armies. Who were these defenders - the men and women who saved Canada? Where did they fight their battles? What weapons did they use?
