An invasion on September 11
First Invasion: The War of 1812
World Premiere Special on The History Channel®
Sunday, September 12 at 9pm ET/PT
On September 11, the United States faced attack. The invasion
was launched not by a group of international terrorists, but rather
by the greatest military power of the day, the British. On
September 11, 1814, the British threatened America's
sovereignty and the independence of its former colonies.
Outnumbered, outclassed and out-armed, with the capital in
flames and the president on the run, the young nation was
pushed to disaster. The two-hour world premiere FIRST
INVASION: THE WAR OF 1812 recounts this key turning point in
the history of America. FIRST INVASION: THE WAR OF 1812 airs
Sunday, September 12 at 9pm ET/PT on The History Channel.
