Virginia saw significant action during the War of 1812, from the Chesapeake-Leopard Affair to the defense of Norfolk against British invaders. Many Virginians supported the struggle for independence from Great Britain--others vehemently opposed "Mr. Madison's War."

A largely forgotten conflict, the war played an important role in the history of the United States. While comprehensive histories of the war are few, there is a positive lack of state-focused studies. Drawing on extensive primary and secondary sources, the author provides an in-depth portrait of the "Old Dominion" at war in the early years of the nation's history.

Christopher M. Bonin is a lifelong student of military history and lives in Williamsburg, Virginia.
