While the United States achieved independence from Britain in 1782, the state of the Union was precarious in the three-and-a-half decades that followed. The war with Britain known as the War of 1812 helped to cement the Union and to solidify a sense of American nationalism--though, as seen in New England's calls for secession, even this was precarious. With his strong and confident voice Grover Gardner takes us on a journey from Washington's Mount Vernon to the battlefield of New Orleans and beyond. He reads at an easygoing, but in no way lackadaisical, pace. His delivery is reminiscent of a lecturer giving a long monologue on a subject with which he is very familiar.
