BREAKING: British Burn Washington ... 2 Centuries Ago BREAKING: British Burn Washington ... 2 Centuries Ago
Two hundred years ago, during the War of 1812, invading British troops destroyed two of the nation's most important buildings — the White House and the Capitol. The war had started over issues of tariffs and the taking of American sailors on the high seas; by the summer of 1814, British fighters were in middle of a campaign burning and looting along the coast. There was no recorded sound from that time, but NPR tells the story by imagining how they might have covered the burning of Washington, D.C., two centuries ago. The re-enactment of the siege is based on Steve Vogel's book Through the Perilous Fight: From the Burning of Washington to the Star Spangled Banner, the Six Weeks that Saved a Nation. Check out this unique view of US History.
