It's remembered here as the USA's first military defeat.So Canada doesn't see it as key step towards Canada becoming a nation? But Canada does regard the UK as the winners? Or just the US as the losers?
QuoteGiven the widespread British invasions, burning of American cities, including the capitol building, the blockade, and the continued confiscation of American ships and cargo, Americans believe they had defeated a British attack on their sovereignty, Canadians that they repulsed 'the massed might of the United States', while the British consider the war as a minor theatre in the larger worldwide Napoleonic Wars.
