1812: The Rivers of War is the first novel in an alternate history series that recasts the War of 1812 and later the Trail of Tears. Sam Houston, Andrew Jackson, and several Scots-Irish and Indian characters head off in a somewhat different direction than they did in our history.

Flint tells a rousing, en­ter­tain­ing story, with exciting battles and engaging characters. It’s a period of U.S. history that I knew little about, and I enjoyed the book.
