""The War of 1812" is an easy handle for students who struggle with dates. But the name is a misnomer that makes the conflict sound like a mere wisp of a war that began and ended the same year.

In reality, it lasted 32 months following the U.S. declaration of war on Britain in June 1812. That's longer than the Mexican-American War, Spanish-American War, and U.S. involvement in World War I…."
