There has been a treaty between the US and Canada that did not allow warships to enter the St. Lawrence and the Great Lakes since the War of 1812. That is, until 1959, when 28 warships entered the waterway and lakes in celebration of the opening of the St. Lawrence Seaway all the way to the far reaches of the Great Lakes. I was on one of those warships, knew about the treaty but didn't know why I was part of history. The little known and remembered war, in the US at least, was brought to life and fully explained in this documentary.

Delivery was prompt and Secrets of the Viking Sword was all I hoped it would be. But apparently someone in the distribution center must have concluded my interests were too bellicose and substituted The Buddha for The War of 1812. Great respect to The Enlightened One but I didn't order it. Now we'll see how good y'all are with returns and re-deliveries.

1812 war causes and conflict

Comments about PBS The War of 1812 DVD:

This video is an excellent presentation of the entire war and the factions represented. It gives perspective from Colonial, British, Canadian, and Native-American sides. The time line now makes much more sense. Even an American history teacher found this valuable.

Comments about PBS The War of 1812 DVD:

This program taught me more about this war, than I learned in U.S History.

I enjoyed this program so much, that I will be watching it again in the near future.

Watch this program on PBS or purchase your DVD.
You won't regret it.
