The War of 1812

Since we are remembering the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812, and I know I have ancestors who fought in it, I thought I would review my history.  This is a very well-done portrayal of the war events by the National Film Board of Canada.  The actors are fantastic, and the war is shown through the viewpoint of Native Americans, the British and Americans.  I like that it shows the war from all angles; not just the American view.  This is a 2 disc set divided into 4 parts, and has won numerous awards.  Catch up on a forgotten piece of history with this DVD - and make sure you watch the moving ending. Check our catalog.
