War of 1812 Timeline (National Park Service)
War of 1812 Timeline (National Park Service) – http://www.nps.gov/subjects/warof1812/index.htm
Representative questions that can be answered with this resource:
- What battles were won by the Americans in the War of 1812?
- Where was the battle of Burnt Corn fought?
- When did British forces seize Ft. Niagra?
Part of a larger War of 1812 Bicentennial site, the Timeline is a concise list of battles annotated with the victorious country. Each battle is described in a sentence that includes the present day location of the battle. Each entry links to an outside resource providing additional material on the battle. These external resources appear to vary in quality and level of citation, so information you find outside of the National Park Service site ought be cross checked against additional resources. The Timeline itself is a useful scaffold for telling stories set during this era.
