War of 1812 is a 4-part documentary series that brings to life an extraordinary, but not well understood, conflict that decided the fate of North America, confirmed the creation of Canada, and annihilated for all time the dream of an independent Native nation.
In Part Four, the American army rebuilds as the end of the Napoleonic Wars frees up troops in Europe. There are bloody battles on the Niagara frontier. The British sail up Chesapeake Bay and burn public buildings in Washington. The British squadron on Lake Champlain is defeated. Peace negotiations result in the signing of the Treaty of Ghent in 1814.
