This well-illustrated updated edition covers more than 400 historic sites of the War of 1812, both well-known and obscure, in both Canada and the United States. The author has used old pen-and-ink drawings from the last two centuries to give a 'then and now' feel to the book. Besides giving readers a detailed history of the events that occurred at the sites, (he) describes what they have to offer visitors today, be it a historical plaque, historic house, or major interpretive centre. This book is a handy tool for both travellers and historians. It remains the only book on the market offering a comprehensive guide to nearly all of the sites in the last war between the United States and Canada."
