The Burning of the White House
- James and Dolley Madison and the War of 1812
- By: Jane Hampton Cook
- Narrated by: Marguerite Gavin
- Length: 11 hrs and 15 mins
Told from multiple points of view - including those of James and Dolley Madison and a British admiral - this is the true story of the burning of the White House in 1814. It's unimaginable today, even for a generation that saw the Twin Towers fall and the Pentagon attacked. It's unimaginable because in 1814, enemies didn't fly overhead; they marched through the streets, and for 26 hours in August, the British enemy marched through Washington, DC, and set fire to government buildings, including the US Capitol and the White House.
Written Like a Children's Book. Boring.
