WHITE HOUSE BLACKENED BY FIRE IN 1814

During the War of 1812, British troops burned the White House in ...

 

On August 24, 1814, during the War of 1812 between the United States and
England, British troops entered
Washington, D.C. and burned the White
House
in retaliation for the American attack on the city of York in Ontario,
Canada, in June 1813.

When the British arrived at the White House, they found that President
James Madison and his first lady Dolley had already fled to safety in
Maryland. Soldiers reportedly sat down to eat a meal made of leftover
food from the White House scullery using White House dishes and silver
before ransacking the presidential mansion and setting it ablaze.

first appearance of infected birds in the area except where cold
weather interrupted the mosquito vectors.
