MULTI-AUTHOR , The War of 1812: A Three-volume Regional Commemoration of the Bicentennial, 2012-14, Vol. 2, 1813: The Border in Flames

From the publishers:
"In the second volume, readers will find contributions from Erie County historian Douglas Kohler and Anne Conable of the Buffalo & Erie County Public Library, as well as internationally recognized authorities like DeCroix; Jim Hill, superintendent of heritage for the Niagara Parks Commission; Richard Barbuto, professor and deputy director of the Department of Military History at the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College; and Donald E. Graves, one of Canada's best known military historians.
Like Western New York Heritage magazine, this publication features a mix of [...] histories and [...] artwork and images. The series examines the war, its impact on [the] region and why it deserves to be remembered 200 years later.
Some stories in Volume 2 include an explanation of period military tactics and uniforms; an examination of Western New York's role in the “Star Spangled Banner” story; and biographies on Canadian heroine Laura Secord and Seth Grosvenor, who arrived in the Queen City in 1813 and left his mark as benefactor of Buffalo's Grosvenor Library."
