War of 1812 Bicentennial Network

During the War of 1812, the young US Navy proved its criticality to our country's defense by protecting national commerce, enforcing trade laws, and ensuring freedom of the seas. In commemorating the bicentennial of the War of 1812 and the Star Spangled Banner, we will honor this legacy as these freedoms remain as critical to our country today as they were 200 years ago.
