Current Exhibit: "The War of 1812: A Bicentennial Exhibition," February 27 - June 1, 2012


The War of 1812: A Bicentennial Exhibition 

February 27 - June 1, 2012 
Main Room, Clements Library 
909 S. University Ave., Ann Arbor, MI 

Curated by Brian L. Dunnigan 
Associate Director and Curator of Maps 

The War of 1812 has sometimes been called a forgotten conflict, one that resolved none of the issues that brought it about. This second confrontation between the United States and Great Britain did, in fact, have a considerable influence on the future development of the country as well as its relationships with Canada, Native Americans, and Europe. The bicentennial of the war of 1812 begins this year. To mark the events of 1812-1814, the Clements Library will present an exhibition drawing on the rich array of primary sources about this conflict found in its collections.

Open to the public in the Main Room of the Clements Library Monday through Friday from 1:00 pm to 4:45 pm. The Clements Library is located on the campus of the University of Michigan at 909 South University Avenue, Ann Arbor. For further information, visit our website or call 734-764-2347.
