….Today Call the War of 1812

"Despite its name, the War of 1812, at least in America, was barely fought in that year. Events in 1813 weren't that noteworthy either. But in the late summer of 1814, the most famous events of the war, apart from the legendary Battle of New Orleans, occurred in a condensed period of just a few short weeks.

The events in 1812-1813 were not noteworthy because the Americans lost battle after battle. Detroit, Queenston Heights, Crysler's Farm and Chippewa were all significant victories for the Anglo-Canadians. Apparently the American victories Battle of the Thames/Moraviantown, Lake Erie and the burning of York all in 1813 don't count either, possibly because they were sideshows to the Niagara frontier? When the fighting was on more even terms in 1814 Americans start to take notice, all that other stuff just doesn't matter.
