My prediction about the War of 1812 is coming true

When I visited a War of 1812 cemetery in Buffalo this summer, I predicted that the US wouldn’t made a big deal out of the war’s bicentennial a la 1976 – the war’s historical legacy is too mixed and too fuzzy for that. Most Americans can’t even tell you what the war was about.

Anyway, my prediction appears to be coming true… and the Canadians have noticed.
