Just wanted to say I know who won the war of 1812 , we did ! Canada that is , the simple answer is we got invaded ,we fought off that attack and went down south and burnt down the White House . But its hard for the US to admit defeat , and historical revisionist can change any out come to fit their needs . But the the facts are , if you try to invade a country and don't gain any territory how can you call that a victory . And thank you to the British and Natives for all the help in defeating the invading hoards . Long Live Canada !
