The British Army burns the US Capitol Building in 1814


An interesting article from the BBC that recounts all the times the Capitol was stormed before - including the Brits setting it on fire in 1814. I had no idea that the Brits attempted to re-invade the place.

I was only hearing about this the other day after the Trump riots.

A strange occurrence, apparently the Brits really didnt have any long term plans and were probably more shocked they managed to get so deep into the US Capitol.

Clinton pardoned the woman who organised the shooting of about a half dozen representatives on the House floor a few years ago. It is all a drama and farce
