Alan Taylor Interviewed About War of 1812.

1 01 2011

I have posted about Alan Taylor`s new history of the War of 1812. On Christmas Eve, public radio in Southern California broadcast an interview in which Taylor talks about his book. To hear the interview, click here.

Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Alan Taylor tells the story of a war that redefined North America. Taylor presents the war not as a second war of independence (as it is conventionally understood) but rather as a complicated civil war with many parties struggling over the legacy of the American Revolution. Immigrants, Indians, soldiers and settlers fought along the undefined northern borderland to decide the fate of the continent.
