Virginia In The War Of 1812 (eBook)
de Christopher M. Bonin
Sobre o livro
Virginia saw significant action during the War of 1812, from the Chesapeake-Leopard Affair to the defense of Norfolk against British invaders. Many Virginians supported the struggle for independence from Great Britain-others vehemently opposed "e;Mr. Madison's War."e; A largely forgotten conflict, the war played an important role in the history of the United States. While comprehensive histories of the war are few, there is a positive lack of state-focused studies. Drawing on extensive primary and secondary sources, the author provides an in-depth portrait of the "e;Old Dominion"e; at war in the early years of the nation's history.
