The War of 1812 Magazine
Issue 13: June 2010
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
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.
