More Kentuckians served and died in the War of 1812 than any other state. From the defeats and victories in the Old Northwest to the stunning victory at New Orleans, Kentuckians played an important role in what many call the “Second War for American Independence.” Using letters, documents, portraits, prints, and artifacts from The Filson’s collection to illustrate his presentation, Jim Holmberg recounts how Kentucky’s experience in the war is chronicled.
Jim Holmberg joined the staff of The Filson in 1982 and currently serves as the Curator of Special Collections.
