War of 1812 Lecture Series Marching to
Grand Rapids, Detroit, Lansing in March
Known by many as the “Forgotten War,” the War of 1812 is
on the path to resurgence 200 years later and heading
straight for three major Michigan cities this March. This
time, however, the battle cries come in the form of lectures
by esteemed War of 1812 scholar Don Hickey, a history
professor at Wayne State College, Wayne, Neb.
"Michigan was in a major war zone in this 'Forgotten War,'
and I am looking forward to meeting with Michiganders to
discuss the conflict," Hickey said. "My guess is that I will
learn as much from them as they do from me."
Join Hickey at 7 p.m. on March 6 at the Hauenstein Center,
Grand Valley State University, in Grand Rapids for “James
Madison: War President.”
Hickey presents “What We Know That Ain’t So: Myths of the War of 1812” at 7 p.m. on March 7
at the Detroit Historical Museum.
“Forgotten Conflict: Why the War of 1812 Matters Today,” will be presented at 7 p.m., March 8 at
the Michigan Historical Center in Lansing.
