B for Brock (2015 Challenge)

The War of 1812 is central to my historical research for a diary that will appear in my Snowdon Shadows novel, ‘Seeking A Knife’.

Major-General Sir Isaac Brock was instrumental in ensuring British forces and local militia in Upper Canada were prepared when war broke out. His victories at Fort Michilimackinac and Detroit defeated American invasion efforts.

How much do you know about the War of 1812? When I studied  British history in the UK, it was a footnote to the Napoleonic Wars.
