Military Subjects:  War of 1812


The War of 1812 Magazine

Issue 13: June 2010

Editorial

By John R. Grodzinski

 

Welcome to the latest issue of the War of 1812. The release of this issue has been delayed due to a variety of circumstances. Fortunately, we are now in a position to return to publishing three electronic issues annually.

This issue offers interesting insights into American artillery by Donald E. Graves, an overview of a British re-enactment unit, several book reviews and a unique feature depicting a generally unknown likeness of Commodore Sir James Lucas Yeo.

We are also almost two years away from the commemoration of the bicentennial of the War of 1812. Across the continent, many groups have been hard at work preparing a host of activities, while significant advances have been at many sites to improve facilities. Among these latter developments are the building of new interpretation centres, additions to existing museums, improved signage on battlefields and historic sites and the preparation of various promotional materials.

We should also remember that these events are running parallel to similar commemorations of the Napoleonic Wars. It is impossible to divorce events in North America from those in Europe. Consequently, as War of 1812 events are planned and executed, recognition should also be made of European affairs.

Enjoy this issue of the War of 1812 Magazine!
