Saturday, August 25, 2012
Special Collections & Archives Department, Ralph Brown Draughon Library
The first in a series of symposia commemorating the bicentennial of the War of 1812 and the Creek War of 1813-4, "...Toward a Larger Stage: The War of 1812, the Creek War and the Idea of America” will focus on the pivotal events of two hundred years ago in Alabama, the Southeast, the United States, and the world.
The symposium will connect the audience to the compelling and significant events that occurred in 1812, the first year of the larger War of 1812 and an important precursor to the conflict building between Creek nationalists, the Red Stick faction, and Anglo-American settlers culminating with the Creek War and the ultimate Battle of Horseshoe Bend in March of 1814. The program will place these events in a local, national, and international context, as well as the cultural context of Indians, Americans, British and Canadians.
This 1812 bicentennial symposium is free and open to the public. Seating is limited and refreshments will be provided.
