In commemoration of the Bicentennial of the War of 1812, visitors are invited to experience “Fayetteville and Cumberland County in the War of 1812.” This exhibit highlights the military, political, and social history of the era. National events such as the inspiration for our National Anthem, the burning of the White House, and Battle of New Orleans will set the stage for events affecting North Carolina. Learn about the state’s defensive measures and the British invasion along our coast. Explore the weapons and tactics of Napoleonic warfare and gain a greater understanding of the war’s impact on the home front in Fayetteville and the surrounding area.
