Helen Frost brings us a rare story, written completely in verse, of two boys growing up in the Indiana Territory in 1812. Anikwa and James’ worlds are the same and totally different. When the burgeoning war between America and Great Britain occurs in their backyard at Fort Wayne, precious trade commodities like salt become scarce, threatening the lives of Anikwa’s Miami tribe and new settlers like James. Frost shows us how the War of 1812 divided native and settler communities who had enjoyed a brief period of mutual dependence, and gives readers a peek at a conflict rarely explored in schools. Come discuss Indiana Territory and the War of 1812 with author Helen Frost. After discussion and Q&A, families will get to visit the galleries and explore artifacts from the War of 1812, including a model ship with a fascinating past.
