Summary
A battle with enemy troops just outside Washington, DC. The humiliating defeat of American soldiers. Residents fleeing the city in terror. The White House in flames. That was the scene on August 24, 1814. There were no television cameras or on-the-scene reporters--but there were those who recorded the events in their diaries, letters, and memoirs. The president and his wife, a teenage soldier, a nine-year-old slave--their words bring to life the shock and shame of that unforgettable day
Summary
Traces the story of the burning of the White House by the British during the War of 1812 from the perspectives of its witnesses, including First Lady Dolley Madison, a British officer, and a nine-year-old slave
