1812


1812

1812 presents a dramatic new account of the War of 1812, as seen through the eyes of its Canadian, American, British and First Peoples participants, for whom it had surprisingly different meanings and consequences. By comparing these perspectives, the exhibition offers visitors a richer and deeper understanding of a conflict that shaped Canada’s destiny.

Content : 1 double-sided introductory display presenting the main messaging and theme of the show; 2 double-sided kiosk units, each side presenting the experience “in a nutshell” of a particular participant group using texts, images and maps; 1 double-sided concluding unit.

Space Required : 50 m² (540 ft²)

Loan Fees : $1,000 shipping included

Availability : 2012 - 2015
