War of 1812

You can use your mobile device or iPad to for a virtual tour of the British romp through Maryland and Washington DC during the War of 1812.  This utility was developed using javascript and illustrations to render an engaging, colorful account of the burning of Washington.

The curriculum was developed at the Historic Congressional Cemetery.  The art was pulled together by a historic illustrator.  Our web team assembled everything in a way that would appeal to elementary school teachers and students.

Be sure to take the quiz on what was burned by the British and what was left standing!
