Abstract

This book chapter explores theĀ  War of 1812 and its aftermath in Upper Canada from a gender perspective. It analyzes the complicated interplay of gender, race and ethnicity on the one hand, and of the local, the national and the imperial on the other. The United States declared war on Great Britain in August 1812. Peace was concluded with the Treaty of Ghent, signed on 24 December 1814. According to the terms of the treaty, hostilities would cease on 18 February 1815, all conquered territory would be returned to the prewar claimant, and both the United States and Britain
