The War of 1812 pitted Canadians and Americans against each other in a bloody war that lasted more than two years. British troops, assisted by English- and French-speaking Canadian militia, stood side by side with First Nations and metis allies to hold back the American invaders.

Through the Canadian Geographic Education Program, Haldane has received a variety of resources to help students reflect on this important piece of Canadian history, inluding: model ships, free-standing timeline, portrait cards, document kit, posters, and a floor-size, interactive map that students can walk around on to explore.

The floor-size map of the War of 1812 will be set up all day on Tuesday, Jan. 22nd if there are any history buffs out there in the community who would like to stop by the school to check it out.
