Nancy King BS: War of 1812 on PBS 2012.06.12 9PM ADST (61* d) RE: BS: War of 1812 on PBS 2012.06.12 9PM ADST 13 Jun 12

I thought the PBS film was fascinating -- learned a lot! Most of what I'd known about the War of 1812 came from reading (many times) the Patrick O'Brien novels, which have, of course, a decidedly British point of view. In recent months I've learned more of the American viewpoint from music programs on the 1812 theme, but they still seemed to concentrate mostly on the sea battles. The film covered the whole picture from several points of view (British, American, Canadian, Native American). Very interesting. I also thought it was cool that Jimmie Driftwood's "Battle of New Orleans" song was included prominently (although misattributed).
