The Corner

Oak & Iron

Today’s Between the Covers podcast is with Ronald D. Utt, author of Ships of Oak, Guns of Iron: The War of 1812 and the Forging of the American Navy. We discuss the claim of Charles Francis Adams that the War of 1812 made the United States a world power, what the war has been so neglected, and legacy of the Battle of Lake Erie, whose bicentennial is almost upon us.

John J. Miller, the national correspondent for National Review and host of its Great Books podcast, is the director of the Dow Journalism Program at Hillsdale College. He is the author of A Gift of Freedom: How the John M. Olin Foundation Changed America.
