We welcome contributions to this site - please send us your comments and proposals for articles.

This site is dedicated to hosting a critical history of the events surrounding the 1812 war between the United States and the British Empire, particularly the economic and political context of the struggle.  A great many excellent sites exist dedicated to the military aspect of the war and some of these are given in our “Sources” page.


We welcome essays and contributions on specific areas of the struggle and are happy to expand the site to bring in new areas which readers may feel are relevant. Please send proposed contributions to our admin address.


Some of these pages contain only a brief introduction to a subject and expansions on these are particularly welcome.
