Start by putting aside what you learned in high school about the causes of the war of 1812. It was more complicated – and interesting – than that, as tonight’s two speakers will elucidate. D. Peter McLeod researched and designed the new exhibit at the Canadian War Museum, The Four Wars of 1812 (companion book published by Douglas & MacIntyre, June 2012) and political scientists James Laxer focuses on the pivotal relationship forged between two bold and brilliant leaders, Major-General Brock and Tecumseh (Tecumseh and Brock: The War of 1812, House of Anansi, 2012).
