Thematic Tour: War of 1812

On June 18, 1812, President James Madison declared war with England, the first time the United States had ever declared war on another country.  In recognition of James Madison's birthday, take a docent-led tour of John Jay’s Bedford House that highlights the causes of war and the impact that it had on America afterwards. Tours depart from the glass porch of the Main House at 1pm, 2pm, and 3pm. Regular admission fees apply.
