By George F. W. Young, Professor Emeritus in the History Department of Saint Mary’s University in Halifax, Nova Scotia

A detailed history of the War of 1812 as it affected Downeast Maine, with a focus on the British occupation of the town of Castine, Maine. The British offensive in Eastern Maine in 1814 resulted in their most sizable capture of US territory, and it would have become a territorial annexation to British North America (as it was then properly called), had it not been for American checkmate of the other British offensives of that year. Includes contemporary documentation in Royal Navy dispatches and Maritime and Maine newspapers.
