  • History Central has short histories of the major battles of the War of 1812. It also has a list of other War of 1812 web sites and lists of relevant books (for sale but could go to a library).
  • Library of Congress, A Guide to the War of 1812  has digital collections and brief histories about various aspects of the War.This Library of Congress site has a link to collectionscanada if you click on "external web sites" on the home page and click on the first article "From Colony to Country."
  • PBS, War of 1812 has an Essays section that gives a US, a British, a Canadian, and a Native People's perspective, as well as articles on POWS, black soldiers, etc.
  • Canadian Encyclopedia, War of 1812, discusses the causes of the war and battles, with links to related web sites.

Also, it seems that most of the relevant records in the FHLC are under "Ontario," with the following counties having some kind of military records for the War of 1812 - Essex, Kent, Glengarry, Lambton, Leeds, Norfolk, Oxford and York, although most are militia records. I'll keep looking and see if there's anything else that's of use.
