With the bicentennial of the War of 1812 drawing to a close, iv'e found myself wondering about something. Canadians think the War is a critically important part of their History-for obvious reasons, as it's fate pretty much hung on the balance of the outcome, and it saw events such as one of the bloodiest battles on Canadian soil, at Lundy's Lane in July 1814. But for the actual Colonial power directing the fighting, the British, it is swept under the Napoleonic rug or treated as a series of Minor skirmishes. In the USA, the aggressor in this particular Conflict, it is seldom mentioned, and when they do, they also treat it as a minor War that they "Won". Should the War hold a bigger place in the Military historiography of these two countries?
