The War of 1812 was more than just the bullet-pointed battles most Americans learned about in textbooks--more than only the Battle for New Orleans, the burning of Washington, DC, and the writing of "The Star-Spangled Banner." In The War of 1812 in Wisconsin, author Mary Eloise Antoine brings a little-known, strategic, corner of the war's history to life. She details the story of a years'-long fight for control of the Northern Mississippi and the "western country," a struggle that culminated in a three-day siege of the area's lynchpin fur trade center in Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin, in July 1814.
