War of 1812 - Historica Resources

War of 1812 Education Guide

"With the arrival of the Bicentennial of the War of 1812, Canada commemorates a conflict that set it on the slow path toward nationhood, and that represents its last direct invasion by a foreign military. To bring this essential era in pre-Confederation history alive for students, The Historica-Dominion Institute has created a War of 1812 Education Guide which includes a print Guide, online resource and an interactive quiz competition. We invite your students to examine defining moments in Canadian history, international relations and Aboriginal and multicultural history in historical and contemporary contexts through themes of perspective, identity, legacy, historical significance and personalities."
