The War of 1812: Guide to Historic Sites app from WNED Buffalo/Toronto allows you to find, explore and learn more about important War of 1812 locations including battlefields, museums and forts. The app is an extension of both the PBS television documentary, The War of 1812 and the companion book The War of 1812: A Guide to Battlefields and Historic Sites.
The app includes great features such as thematic exploration of the seven regional 1812 theaters of war, smart actions for each location, “Nearby” which not only shows you what is near you but can show you what’s nearby other locations, “Favorites” to keep a smart travel itinerary and videos of bonus features from the film.
To truly understand a world-changing historical event such as the War of 1812, and how it has shaped North America, one must learn about it at a basic level. An excellent way to bring the war down to size and at the same time grasp its immense historical importance is to visit the battlefields and other relevant sites that date from the era of the conflict.
