Bandy Heritage Center

In observance of the bicentennial of the War of 1812, the Bandy Heritage Center for Northwest Georgia is compiling an anthology of essays tracing the political and military course of the conflict. This collection provides readers with an understanding of the causes, personalities, and key events of the war with a concentration on the war in the American South.

The South was the decisive theater of the War of 1812 and the scene of the United States’ greatest military victories. Indeed, America’s Southern triumph set the tone for the country’s physical, political, economic, and military expansion for the next half-century. We hope that you enjoy this collection of essays about The War of 1812.
