More about the publication:

“1812: A Guide to the War and its Legacy” is designed to provide readers with an overview of the political, strategic, operational, and logistical basis of decisions that led to the declaration of war in June 1812, the campaigns on the northern borderlands, and the negotiation of a peace treaty. The book then offers an introduction to the sites of war and memory on both sides of the Canadian – American border.

The history section, intended to provide context and a brief description of the key battles, has been written by Terry Copp. Jeffrey W. Mott added the historical context of the war in what is now New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. The information on places to visit is the work of Caitlin McWilliams, Geoff Keelan, Nick Lachance, Matt Symes, Terry Copp, and Jeffrey W. Mott. The maps were designed by Nick Lachance who, with Caitlin McWilliams, Linda Copp and Matt Symes, took most of the modern day photographs used to illustrate the text. Matt Symes with Nick Lachance designed the book.
