Category War of 1812 Pathways to Peace: Touring Exhibition of Prints; Art Studies of Upper Canada During the War of 1812 June 24, 2012 to October 31, 2012 Presented By: Western Corridor Alliance The Western Corridor in Upper Canada during the War of 1812 was burned and looted by invading Americans. The First Nations, British regulars and the militia, made up of new settlers, many of whom were United Empire Loyalists and Americans recently arrived seeking a new home and peace after the American Revolution, defended their homes and land from this invasion. This exhibition is a collection of prints from original Canadian art depicting the stories of heroism in battle as well as the defence of their homes by rural farmers and the support by the First Nations. It also includes art of the sites used, built and destroyed during the war.
