Two hundred years ago this year, during the War of 1812, the British army occupied Washington, setting fire to many public buildings, including the White House and the Capitol. It was on August 24, 1814, that approximately 4.000 troops entered the city, causing most of the residents to flee. A warning was dispatched to First Lady Dolley Madison who managed to escape across the Potomac River with a portrait of George Washington in tow. This was the only time since the American Revolution that a foreign power has captured the United States capital.
