1812, a novel

by David Niven

The Back Cover

The war of 1812 would either make America a global power sweeping all the way to the Pacific-or break it into small pieces bound to mighty England. It was a second revolution of sorts to prove to the British that America had to be taken seriously. The principal actors in this drama were James and Dolley Madison, and Andrew and Rachel Jackson. Their courage and determination would shape America's destiny.
