Why do Canadians know so little about the war? Who won the war? Perhaps most importantly, what is its lasting legacy?
In an interview with CTV News, Terry Copp discusses the War of 1812 and offers new insights that both explain and contextualize this important part of North American history. While the victors are continually debated upon, those that suffered the greatest losses – the First Nations – must also be considered. Rejuvenated by the government’s bicentennial commemoration efforts, the war is being etched into the collective memory of Canadians, confirming the need for a greater understanding of the conflict.
