Description
August 28, 1814. Smoke rises from the ruin of the Capitol after a British raiding party came up the Anacostia River and burned Washington City, while President James Madison ponders the future in this war he began over the unanimous objections of his political adversaries. The War of 1812 remains the one we understand least—was it a conflict that resolved nothing, or our second war of independence? At its center were James Madison and his extraordinary wife Dolley, who defined the role of First Lady, and who would prove perhaps her husband's most indispensable ally. The author of Thomas Jefferson, Architect, Hugh Howard presents a gripping account of the conflict as the Madisons experienced it.

"Hugh Howard has turned the least known and understood war in American history into a Technicolor, wide-screen epic of thrilling naval battles, brutal backwoods skirmishes, villainous intrigue, and stirring heroism. Thanks to Howard's prodigious research, fine eye for the telling detail, and vivid prose, the War of 1812 seems as contemporary and compelling as yesterday's battlefield dispatches from the Middle East."—Thurston Clarke
