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.

"How We Beat the Yankees: British and Canadian Eyewitnesses of the War of 1812" features Professor Don E. Graves, an authority on the War of 1812 from a Canadian perspective.

He has taught military history and served as a staff historian for the Canadian Directorate of History and Heritage. He has also published extensively on the major battles of the war of 1812, including Crylser's Farm, Lundy's Lane and Chippawa. His book on the Battle of Plattsburgh is forthcoming.

Graves will offer a spirited explanation of why and how the Canadians won the War of 1812.
