Faces of 1812 presents some of the men and women, both combatants and civilians, who experienced the War of 1812.
The War of 1812 united French-speaking and English-speaking Canadians, First Peoples, and the British against a common foe. The victory gained through their successful joint defence helped lay the foundations for modern Canada.
This virtual exhibition highlights some of the rare portraits and archival documents presented in the exhibition Faces of 1812 on display at the Canadian War Museum, in conjunction with the Museum’s own major exhibition, 1812. Both exhibitions will be shown from June 13, 2012 to January 6, 2013. This virtual exhibition also includes additional works that highlight the War of 1812 as a rich and continuing source of artistic inspiration, commemoration, and reflection.
