The War of 1812-Crucible of Controversy: Capitol Attacks and Lewis Cass
In the aftermath of the January 6, 2021 attack on the US. Capitol, we heard references to the last attack by the British being during the War of 1812. What we don't hear is that it was in retaliation for the Americans attacking the capitol in York (present day Toronto.) Another omission is the role that Lewis Cass played in the war. It was he that saved the day when Territorial Governor, William Hull, surrendered Detroit to the British, the only U.S city captured by a foreign enemy. It was Cass that initiated the ""round robin"" which removed Hull from command. Cass' name has been tarnished in recent years and has been removed from a government building in Lansing.
