War of 1812: Building Unity - The Seeds of a Nation
For Canadians, the War of 1812 conjures a rich historical moment steeped in both fact and myth, full of heroes, villains, disastrous defeats and glorious victories. While the conflict did not predestine the emergence of Canada as a nation, outcomes like the sustained sovereignty of British North America and the collaborative experience of resisting American forces would eventually help to feed Canada's transition from British colony to dominion to independant nation.
The Treaty of Ghent officially ended the war on December 24, 1814. It restored the pre-war borders and territories, thereby spawning centuries of debate among historians about who lost or won the war. One of the Treaty's most important legacies, though, was the role it played in enabling the subsequent 200 years of peace that followed. The hard lessons learned in the War of 1812 further strengthened the physical and economic ties between Upper and Lower Canada, driving greater colonial unity. More viscerally, the conflict spawned shared stories and heroes that represent a common thread in the histories of Canada's founding peoples.
