Something I did not know about... Sept. 10 2011
By Michael Valdivielso - Published on
Format: Paperback
Nova Scotia and New England were not happy about the War of 1812. It cut into their trade and, frankly, friendships. While at war they tried to continue to trade and act peaceful towards each other. While American History classes taught me that New England wanted out of the war, those classes suggested it was just for profit. But this book makes it clear that there were other issues. Many people on both sides of the border were related - this was a war that was causing pain and damage to families and society. The book deals with daily life, garrison and prison life, the even the refugees that flowed into Nova Scotia in the form of freed slaves.
It brings more details, which I was not aware of, into the already complex events we call the War of 1812. A must for any history or military library. Allows us to see the cost of conflict and the impact on the home front.
I would also suggest The War of 1812 (The Chicago History of American Civilization) and The Dawn's Early Light (Maryland Paperback Bookshelf) if you wish to know about the War of 1812.
