Yesterday's daily document from the U.S. National Archives was this image of the "Capture of Washington" during the War of 1812. The image reminded me of some other resources that I've shared in the past about the War of 1812. Click here to find two sets of animated maps about the war of 1812.
Applications for Education
One of these sets of maps is from an American perspective and the other is from a Canadian perspective. These maps could be useful in helping students compare perspectives on the War of 1812.
