Lee Murdock Presents Here We'll Stand, The War of 1812 and the Struggle that Forged Two Nations
Internationally acclaimed folksinger and historian, Lee Murdock shares his perspective on the War of 1812. His latest CD Here We'll Stand is his eighteenth. The songs on this recording are centered on the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812, a struggle between the young United States and Great Britain for the riches of North America. Caught in the middle were native peoples, whose land and culture were forever changing with the influx of settlers from the cities of the east coast. In addition, American land speculators looked longingly north of the border to the fertile lands of Upper Canada, now the province of Ontario, to continue the "American experiment of democracy."
