This is indeed the most forgotten War. I have a serious lack of info on the actually events of it and ironically, it airs on Sept 12th on the History channel.

I'm buying a couple lbs of Tostitos and Salsa for this one.

One of the most interesting points is that the biggest battle was fought two week after the treaty was signed!

In 1814 we took a little trip
along with Colonel Jackson down the mighty Mississip.
We took a little bacon and we took a little beans
And we caught the bloody British in the town of New Orleans.


Where are you Johnny Horton?

Once you know your enemies true ambitions then knock 'em back until they "can not" fight anymore. We didn't do that in Korean, Vietnam, Libya, Iraq ect. Hopefully we'll not repeat the previously failed strategies.

Not taking threats seriously, or finishing the job is becoming the American military tradition.

Did America neglect any warnings before the British invaded in 1812? Were we taken by surprise?

Well the Key to that war was Francis Scott :wink:

But then again the British were never very good at impessing Americans... :wink:

BTW, nobody won!
