The War of 1812 Video & Audio

Canadian Pride

Here's what you get when you combine the music of The Arrogant Worm, a Canadian folk trio, with Ren and Stimpy, the creation of Canadian animator John Kricfalusi: a hilarious Canadian-revisionist history of the War of 1812.

American Pride

This is a vintage performance of the Jimmy Driftwood classic, "The Battle of New Orleans," sung by Johnny Horton, the recording artist who made the song a hit in 1959. (Check out the curious costuming for a song celebrating the heroics of Andrew Jackson, "Old Hickory," and his army of volunteers drawn from the backwoods of Kentucky and Tennessee.)
