Who knew that this seemingly inconsequential “war” was really the end and start of more consequential events in US history? Richard Bell brings his signature flair to this talk on the War of 1812. He answered questions I was too ill informed to even think about nevertheless ask. It was time well spent.
Excellent presentation, though he did not know of one of the largest most improtant battles of the War
Another riveting seminar by Dr. Bell. It's such a relief to get back to one of his seminars, to be in the hands of a master storyteller who is also a deeply learned expert. I strongly recommend this one and all of his seminars and courses.

Here we see politicians finding excuses to do what they wanted, anyway. We get a glimpse of the exploits of Bloody Jackson and exploitation of Indian lands. We see obsessions of some in the U.S. to roll over Canada. We learn of an almost startling humanity shown by the British, actually the British, to resettle slaves. We see the "War of 1812" wasn't just 1812 but stretched into 1815.
