There have been guidebooks to military sites before, but no other book has covered the War of 1812 in its entirety. This well-illustrated updated edition covers more than 400 historic sites of the War of 1812, both well-known and obscure, in both Canada and the United States.

The author has used old pen and ink drawings from the last century to give a "then and now" feel to the book. Curious to know what is at the site of the Battle of Queenston Heights? Besides giving readers a detailed history of the events that occurred at the sites, the author describes what they have to offer visitors today, be it a historical plaque, historic house, or major interpretive centre.

This book is a handy tool for both travellers and historians. It remains the only book on the market offering a comprehensive guide to nearly all of the sites in our last war with the United States.

Gilbert Collins is a long-time resident of Ottawa and an amateur historian. He has travelled extensively throughout Canada and the United States for over 35 years, visiting historic sites associated with Colonial conflicts. He is working on his next book, a guidebook to the historic sites of the French and Indian War.

“This book is a handy tool for both travelers and historians. It remains the only book on the market offering a comprehensive guide to nearly all of the sites in the last war between the United States and Canada.”


"He has done a public service in encouraging renewed appreciation of the importance of preserving the memory of a war that brought honour and shame in full measure. Readers will discover a wealth of anecdotes and stories."

- Gord McNulty, The Hamilton Spectator

"Those people inspired to visit sites connected to the conflict will find no better general guidebook than this one."

- The American Review of Canadian Studies

"Of all the guidebooks on the War of 1812, this is the most complete."

- Wesley B. Turner, CBRA

"This neat field guide highlights 30 areas in both the United States and Canada where there are significant sites, incidents, battles, ruins, plaques, ports, forts, monuments, graveyards, statues," - Sun Times
