Living Americans remember September 11, and even Pearl Harbor, when the country was attacked from the outside. There was another "perilous fight" during the War of 1812, when Washington's best-known buildings were burned to the ground. Steve Vogel, staff reporter at the Washington Post, is a historian and author of Through the Perilous Fight: Six Weeks that Saved the Nation.
