The University of Baltimore proudly hosts the Bicentennial of the War of 1812 Lecture Series.

These engaging public discussions explores the causes and effects of the War of 1812. From little-known facts about the war to the ways it impacted Americans of all kinds—including those who had families living on both the U.S. and Canadian sides of the border—the series will shed light on a period of history worth revisiting for its politics, economics, color and message of reconciliation.

All events are free and open to the public.

"The Civil War of 1812: American Citizens, British Subjects, Irish Rebels and Indian Allies"

Alan Taylor, professor of history at the University of California, Davis, where he specializes in early American history and Canadian history, will expound on the effect of the War of 1812 on common people and on families whose members lived on both sides of the Canada-U.S. border. His latest book, which has the same title as his lecture, was published in 2010 and received rave reviews.
