• Becky Chandler
February 17 is the anniversary of the official end of the worthless, destructive and unnecessary War of 1812, which was a product of the treasonous betrayal by the Jeffersonian Republicans of their anti-federalist principles, and the total defeat of the Federalists who had become the last defenders of those principles and the spirit of the Revolution. The stage was set for the destruction of the Republic and the beginning of Empire.
