second podcast takes the story from this war to the
end of the American Civil War. It discusses the series
of minor skirmishes and diplomatic treaties which
shaped the relationship between the United States
and the British colonies during this period, and the
rising awareness of local politicians that they needed
to play an augmented role in their own local defense.

American colonies into a single Dominion which we
now call Canada.
