R EVIEWS EDITED BY ANDREW BURSTEIN AND NANCY ISENBERG Defending the Old Dominion: Virginia and Its Militia in the War of 1812. By Stuart L. Butler. (Lanham, MD: University Press of America, 2013. Pp. 642. Cloth, $95.00.) Reviewed by Gene Allen Smith In the early 1960s, as Americans commemorated the sesquicentennial of the War of 1812, historians reexamined the causes of the conflict. Reginald Horsman, Bradford Perkins, and Roger H. Brown, among others, offered important contributions to our understanding of the nature and conduct of the war.

Still another group of historians dissected how the war impacted individual states. These included Sarah McCulloh Lemmon's Frustrated Patriots: North Carolina and the War of 1812 (Chapel Hill, NC, 1974); and Victor Sapio's Pennsylvania and the War of 1812 (Lexington, KY, 1982). The bicentennial of the War of 1812 witnessed more scholars offering nuanced interpretations about the conflict.
