Did you think America was finished fighting the British after the War for Independence? Think again! Smoldering tensions flared into outright battle in the War of 1812, during which American troops invaded Canada and British redcoats burned Washington, D.C.

Join noted historian and storyteller Bill Potter for twelve exciting, true tales of battle, piracy, ship-fights, and Indians from the War of 1812. Meet boy warrior Jarvis Hanks, fight alongside “Old Hickory,” flee British raiders with Dolley Madison, and learn about many more war-time examples of God’s providence.
