Using examples from his new book, In their Own Words, Vice Admiral George W. Emery, USN (Ret.) will capture the myriad of emotions spurred by the War of 1812: patriotic fervor, anxiety, the immediacy of the moment, the joy of peace, and more. Whether encouraging peers, issuing orders to subordinates, lamenting a hero’s death or reporting a glorious frigate action, these emotions spring from the stirring contemporary letters, newspapers, and broadsides of the War of 1812 in Admiral's Emery's collection. Reception to Follow.
