What You Should Probably Know About the War of 1812 (But Probably Don't)

Langsdale Library

The University of Baltimore proudly hosts the Bicentennial of the War of 1812 Lecture Series.

These engaging public discussions explores the causes and effects of the War of 1812. From little-known facts about the war to the ways it impacted Americans of all kinds—including those who had families living on both the U.S. and Canadian sides of the border—the series will shed light on a period of history worth revisiting for its politics, economics, color and message of reconciliation.

All events are free and open to the public.

"What You Should Probably Know About the War of 1812 (But Probably Don't)" features Professor Don Hickey of Wayne State College (Neb.), who has published extensively on the War of 1812 and is widely recognized as the "dean" of War of 1812 historians.

His book The War of 1812: The Forgotten Conflict (which has gone through several editions) has become the standard work on the historical event.

This lecture is based on Hickey's most recent book by the same title.
