In this article, the author offers a unique perspective on the war of 1812. Unlike other sources that focus on the causes and impact of the war, Conway provides information on American and Canadian privateering in the war and the reasons for such action (either for patriotism or profit). I choose this source as it provides unique information regarding the parties involved in the war. I will use this source to find out if there were any other private individuals that were directly involved in the war apart from the American military and naval forces.
