Brother Against Brother? A First Nations Perspective of the War of 1812
When war was declared in June of 1812 the Haudenosaunee (Six Nations) were determined not to have their nations fight against one another again, but they were pulled in two different directions because of conflicting treaty obligations.
The Peace Chiefs wanted to remain neutral, but lingering animosities from the American Revolution set various communities at odds with one another. Pleas for neutrality fell on the deaf ears of the warriors. So, there was no single Haudenosaunee response to the war. Even within each nation there were divided loyalties.
The Veterans Memorial Parkway Community Project is a partnership between government, business and the community to build a lasting tribute to our servicemen and women.
