Taped by the WGBH Forum Network, historian George Daughan visited the U.S.S. Constitution Museum to discuss his book 1812: The Navy’s War.
Daughan details the chronology of the war and many of its central players, including U.S. President James Monroe. The Navy was an unsung contributor to America’s success in the war, and salvaged what was initially a losing battle.
