New Orleans. You can use a battalion of Napoleon's old guard Grenadiers on the US side as New Orleans militia!

Chippewa and Lundy's lane; both American and British/Canadian armies were equals, which makes for a hard fought war game.

Sacketts Harbor…amphibious landing stuff

Brechtel19813 Mar 2019 12:31 p.m. PST

All three actions on the Niagara frontier in 1814-Chippawa, Lundy's Lane and Fort Erie.

I agree with many, Chippewa and Lundy's Lane.

Another interesting fight was the American delaying action at North Point in 1814.

Harve de Grace, MD. if referring to the US-British War; Borodino if talking Napoleonic Wars.

Land battle, I'd say the Battle of New Orleans. It was the closet War of 1812 battle to Texas, which was then a part of the Viceroyalty of New Spain (Virreinato de Nueva Espaņa). At that time, the colony was fighting for independence from Spain and, in 1821, would gain its freedom and become the nation of Mexico.

Naval battle, the USS Constitution vs. the HMS Guerriere, and the beginning of a legend.
