Canada 1812: Forged in Fire – It may be the most misunderstood war in history. When Americans and Canadians needle each other over a few beers, both sides say the other started it. Canadians say the Americans were trying to take over Canada. Americans say they were trying to fight British oppression. Both sides claim victory. One thing is certain – no event did more to shape the course of two nations, the fledgling United States of America, and the soon to be established Canada. This series will examine 6 central figures from the War of 1812 and through them see how events unfolded in the different arenas and social spheres that would shape the true north strong and free.
