I'm spending the week in Boston in July studying the War of 1812 on the USS Constitution and have been buying books and getting all my ducks in a row for the program. I ran into this clip. It might be the most honest rendition of modern understanding of the war out there. I couldn't imbed the YouTube viewer so have it as a link both above and below.
A gentle reminder ...
The goal of this blog initially was for Mr. Mc to show his students and friends what he doing while in Pennsylvania and DC in 2011. Now it's being used as a place for him, travelling colleagues and former students to discuss edumacation and history related "stuff" as well as ... well, anything which pops into his head. Mr. Mc would never knowingly embarrass either the school he loves or the family he is devoted to. By joining in the discussion, he expects the same of you.
