An account of the War of 1812 and its impact on the District of Maine. Although Maine saw little ground action during the war, most of which was fought at sea or in the Great Lakes area, it nonetheless affected the daily lives of residents, pitting locals against each other and against the government, with some backing the American cause and others in bitter opposition. It also led to an increase in smuggling. This activity, already flourishing, became even more widespread during the war as Mainers realized the high profits to be made from selling to the British army and navy.
