This fascinating book reveals how U.S. president James Madison declared war on Britain (and essentially its colonies in Canada) in 1812 for harming U.S. trade with Europe, for impressing U.S. citizens into the service of the British Royal Navy, for siding with Native Americans against the U.S., and for standing in the way of American expansion to the north into Canada.
