Sunday marked the bicentennial of the burning of Washington, D.C. by the British Army during the War of 1812.

 

Following the defeat of American forces during Battle of Bladensburg at the hands of the British, Washington, D.C. was occupied and burned.

 

The occupation remains the last time the United States Capital was occupied by a foreign army.

The British Embassy marked the occasion with this trolly tweet:

re "The occupation remains the last time the United States Capital was occupied by a foreign army." 

 

Not sure the British should be really considered a "foreign army". Maybe more like "Same same but different" (to the US Army) or "Daddy UK is really pissed (angry) this time". 

 

Fighting a battle in a place with a name like "Bladensburg"? What kind of results would one expect? Our brothers in the UK fight battles with stirring names like Waterloo, Trafalgar, etc...but Bladensburg???? Ha Ha

I found it interesting to learn today, while reviewing the history, the War of 1812 ended with the Treaty of Ghent signed in late 1814, and news of the peace treaty took two months to reach the U.S., during which fighting continued.
