Battlefields of the War of 1812 to be protected

The Civil War Trust in the US has decided to also preserve the battlefields of the Revolutionary War and the War of 1812. According to the Trust, there is a strong and logical connection can be made between the three wars. “The Revolutionary War created this country, and the War of 1812 affirmed that creation” and “The Civil War defined who we are.”
