Description

United States Army Campaigns of the War of 1812 Series. CMH Pub. 74-5. After executing a successful raid on Washington, British leaders turned their attention to the more strategically important and prosperous port city of Baltimore. Despite a combined land and sea attack, the operation failed. Together with news that American forces had also defeated a British invasion along the Lake Champlain corridor at Plattsburgh, New York, the victory at Baltimore gave U.S. peace commissioners in Ghent, Belgium a much stronger position from which to negotiate the terms of the treaty that ended the war.
