Not exactly 1812, but if you are in Ottawa before November 12, 2006, be sure to get to the War Museum and check out this exhibition.

Clash of Empires is the first major Canadian-American joint exhibition on the first global war. It tells the story of the Seven Years' War - a conflict that begins with Britain and France fighting for imperial predominance in North America and later spreads to Europe, the West Indies, Africa, and Asia. This war changes the world map, sets the stage for the American Revolution and is a decisive factor in the evolution of both Canada and United States.

My fiancee and I checked this exhibit out this past summer. Its absolutely excellent, but it was very crowded when we went.

Thanks for the reminder, it would be nice to revisit with fewer people.

This was the first time I had seen General Brock's uniform as well. Seeing that bullet hole really made it real.
