Bicentennial Commemoration of the War of 1812

The War of 1812 was a defining moment in our history. In June 1812, the United States declared war on Great Britain, and a month later American troops invaded Upper Canada. From 2012 to 2014, Canadians and Americans commemorate the bicentennial of the War of 1812 - a seminal event in our shared histories.
