200 years ago on June 18th, 1812, President James Madison and the United States Congress declared war on Great Britain. Battles raged throughout the continent for over two years before peace was negotiated. To mark this bicentennial, CTV's Canada AM spent the day at historic Fort George in Niagara-on-the-Lake. The various segments will give students a brief overview of the life and times of officers; the role of First Nations people; the role of Laura Secord; and the importance of the War of 1812 in Canada's history.
