The Dawn's Early Light by Walter Lord
Summer 1814, Torn by internal conflict, plagued by an empty treasury, embittered by the human cost of a war that couldn't be won, the United States seemed on the point of collapse. With the British blockade strangling her trade, the economy of the young nation was in ruins, and now Washington itself lay at the mercy of an invading English army.
