The War of 1812 was a conflict fought between the United States and the United Kingdom, with their respective allies, from June 1812 to February 1815. Historians in Britain often see it as a minor theatre of the Napoleonic Wars, while historians in the United States and Canada see it as a war in its own right.

History[]

The War[]

In 1812, British forces invaded Washington, D.C. where they soon burned down several government buildings, including the White House.

Aftermath[]

The War of 1812 was a pivotal event in U.S history as it was marked as one of the only times the United States was invaded by a foreign power and the White House was captured.

Much later in 2013, the White House Siege occurred, masterminded by the Koreans for United Freedom, a North Korean paramilitary terrorist organization. This event marks the second time the White House was captured by a foreign power in U.S history.
