About Us

1813 is many things.

To some, it means action.

It is the year after the beginning of the War of 1812. A reluctant Congress had still NOT paid for a standing army. Congress relied on militias and did NOTHING.

A year later, the British burned what would be our White House.

Don’t be Congress.
