Er... You said you knew history?
The war of 1812 began when the US declared war on Britain because they were attacking American trade ships.
Major events in the war:
1813, Battle of Thames, won by the US. It's the only major battle fought on "Canadian" soil.
1814, British set Washington DC on fire, and that fire additionally consumed the Presidential Mansion.
Also 1814, The Treaty of Ghent is signed, ending the war without a winner.
Flaws in your statement:
1) The only major battle fought on Canadian soil was won by the US.
2) "Canadians" didn't set fire to Washington D.C. British (out of Britain actually) did.
3) Canada wasn't even a NATION in 1812. You were colonies of the British Empire until your independence in 1867.
4) The White House did not exist as the white house in 1814. The president had a mansion called aptly, the Presidential Mansion. The mansion was burned to the ground, but not specifically selected - the entire city was burned.
5) Since the treaty was signed without either side surrendering, neither side "won".
Oh God, You've contradicted Van. "What has science done?!?!"
