In the spring of 1814, a temporary calm settles along the Patuxent. While the British Navy skulks in the Chesapeake Bay, the Willows families and their neighbors enjoy a brief season of peace. That is until Napoleon is subdued. Britain now prepares to loose her navy on America, even as peace negotiations commence in Belfium. Weeks of relentless British attacks along the waterfront soften the will of the American militia, leaving the British military confident that victory is within their grasp. And their primary target? Washington. Experience the pain and passion of five families--American, slave and British--as they endure three of the darkest days in American history--the week Washington burned.
