Presented by Jon Parkin. The discussion of the War of 1812 is from the perspective of a St. Louis merchant, how this merchant was able to initially acquire trade goods and develop a trading business with the public and the military during this period of unrest. Methods and trials of maintaining inventory became a major part of the enterprise. Mr. Parkin teaches World History at Edwardsville High School and Geography courses for Lewis and Clark Community College. He participates in War of 1812 re-enactments, conducts research on historical subjects, and tutors Burmese refugees.
