Re: Re: Comparing points of view



Obviously I'm not Jamie but I can provide a bit of a comment. In my experience, for obvious reasons the War of 1812 is largely forgotten in the British Isles. Despite Lonnie Donegan singing about the battle of New Orleans (, the British tend to completely ignore the 1812 war and are largely ignorant of it ever happening. There is much more emphasis (both in the education system and in the worlds of fiction and history) on the Napoleonic Wars that happened at the same time, and from which Britain emerged somewhat more covered in glory.
