The War of 1812 on the Home Front
November 1, 2018 @ 12:00 am
The War of 1812 brought great danger to those whose homes sat at the overlap between the home front and the fighting front. Many along the 37-mile long Niagara River witness raids and violence in both directions. The most powerful and destructive operation occurred in December 1813—when it was over, every home along the river except one was burned to the ground, and hundreds of American civilians were forced to flee. Rich Barbuto shares this fascinating tale as November’s installment of the Ft. Leavenworth series.
