Jamie Swift, co-author (along with Ian McKay) of Warrior Nation: Rebranding Canada in an Age of Anxiety participated in a panel discussion “The War of 1812: Whose War Was It, Anyway?” hosted by the Canadian Historical Association Active History Committee, in partnership with The History Education Network.

This is the bicentennial year of the war of 1812 and the federal government has dedicated millions of dollars to commemorate it, but what are we really commemorating and why? Jamie Swift shares his thoughts. For more on the event see www.activehistory.ca.
