Summary
The War of 1812 completed the struggle for American independence that began in 1776 and propelled a new nation forward. This book accompanies the National Portrait Gallery exhibition of the same name and features 115 color images, an introduction by one of the exhibition's curators, and two essays by leading historians. Marking the two-hundredth anniversary of the conflict, this book explores how the United States was transformed and unified by the individuals who took part in that seminal event. It provides an overview of the battles, the negotiations for peace, the aftermath, known as "the era of good feelings", and the great commercial, industrial, and cultural expansion that followed, which to some marked the birth of the United States as a world power
