Mr. Madison's War: The Controversial War of 1812

Tuesday, Aug 28, 2012 10:00a to 4:00p

In 1812, Massachusetts was bitterly divided along partisan political lines and a wave of popular protests greeted the declaration of war on 18 June. The MHS is commemorating the bicentennial of the war with an exhibition that showcases a number of letters, broadsides, artifacts, and images from it's rich collections including a midshipman's log of the USS Constitution describing the ship's first great victory and a brass cannon captured from the British at the Battle of New Orleans in 1815.
