American History

sandvick reblogged this on DailyHistory.org and commented:

Carl Benn at the JHU Press Blog has posted a blog about the commemoration of the 200th anniversary of the battles that raged between the United States, Britain, and Native Americans along the Mississippi River. In 1814, the United States sought to reestablish control over the Mississippi and attacked British and allied Native American troops. Ultimately, the United States' incursion was unsuccessful and the British maintained control of the upper Mississippi and Great Lakes. Benn's post discusses the 1814 conflict in the Mid-West and provides the dates for when battle re-enactments will be occurring in both the United States and Canada.
