It’s been 200 years since the War of 1812 broke out. And since Ohio was in the thick of the conflict, the state has launched a year-long commemoration of the event.

Statehouse correspondent Bill Cohen was on-hand for the ceremony in the capitol building. Click the play button above to hear his report.

    This was was not about the USA preserving its boundaries, it was about the Canadians stopping the US from annexing Upper Canada (Ontario). The reason the war is mostly forgotten is because our mission was thwarted (we lost to Canada). It is interesting how we get our history reinterpreted over time.
