Some interesting stuff there, sciencegeek.
The funny thing is, Canadians also felt that we "had stood up to a bully and remained standing". And we still feel that way. After all, we did repell an invasion by a considerably larger army. It all depends which side of the border you're standing on as to how you perceive it.
Where the USA has great reason for pride is in how well their excellently built frigates did in some of the small naval battles of that war...and, of course, the successful defense of New Orleans a few days after the war was officially over.
