Hot Attraction: 1812 at the Canadian War Museum

A coat belonging to Major General Sir Isaac Brock. The hole left by the American musket ball that killed Isaac Brock is clearly visible on the chest of his coat.

The War of 1812 was one of the most significant events in Canadian history, its outcome instrumental in creating the Canada we know today. The Canadian War Museum commemorates the 200th anniversary of the conflict with an appropriately substantial exhibition, simply titled “1812.” Visitors can learn the history behind the war through the perspectives of its four central participants: Canada, the United States, Great Britain and Native Americans.
