The Civil War of 1812: A Continent Divided

September 19, 2014 @ 7:30 pm

Friday, Sept. 19 at 7:30 pm
The Civil War of 1812: A Continent Divided 
At Whallonsburgh Grange Hall
$5; Students Free

In the early nineteenth century, Britons and Americans renewed their struggle over the legacy of the American Revolution. In this second confrontation, soldiers, immigrants, settlers, and Indians fought to determine the fate of a continent. Would revolutionary republicanism sweep the British from Canada? Or would the British contain, divide, and ruin the shaky republic?

Talk by Alan Taylor, historian and author of The Civil War of 1812: American Citizens, British Subjects, Irish Rebels, & Indian Allies. Taylor won the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for History for his recent book, The Internal Enemy: Slavery and War in Virginia, 1772-1832. He was also the recipient of the Pulitzer Prize in 1996 for William Cooper’s Town: Power and Persuasion on the Frontier of the Early American Republic. Alan Taylor currently teaches at the University of Virginia.

Funding for this project came from an Education and Outreach grant from the Champlain Valley National Heritage Partnership.
