The War of 1812 is luring me with a siren call. I'm back to painting Perry plastic Napoleonics as the 49th Foot (the Green Tigers) and working out which combination of US army uniforms to go with for the opposition. Meanwhile, I've been raiding 3 libraries for 1812 material (mine, the Regina Public and the University of Regina). Best pickings to date at the UofR since they teach Canadian history and I get extended borrowing privileges as a faculty member.
