        Black Soldiers and Sailors in the War of 1812 Video

        In this bonus video segment from The War of 1812, we will see the crucial role that blacks played in the war as well how the war helped many escape slavery. The British forces welcomed an estimated 4,000 plus refugee slaves onto their warships and into their military. The escaped slaves were often enthusiastic to fight and careful to not be caught as not to be returned to slavery. Additionally, about 20% of the US Navy was estimated to consist of black sailors possibly due to the nature of international relations on the sea. At the end of the war, the US demanded the return of their “property” from the British. But Britain was moving towards abolition and refused, instead granting land in Trinidad to these sailors where they would establish communities.
