The War of 1812 came on the heels of the American Revolution, which may be why so few Americans know much about it, aside from the fact that it was during the war that our national anthem, The Star Spangled Banner, was written. June 18, 2012 kicks off the bicentennial of "The Second American Revolution" and a number of communities in New York State, especially those in northern and western New York where many of the land and sea battles of the war occurred, are staging special commemorative events to mark the nearly three year war.
