The Loxleys and the War of 1812 (Application)

Top of page

The Loxleys & the War of 1812 is an interactive graphic novel that tells the historically-based story of a fictional Upper Canadian family called the Loxleys. Torn apart by the war that raged along the Niagara Peninsula over 200 years ago - the Loxleys take part in battles, meet legendary historical figures, and do whatever it takes to survive. Reframing the war for a tablet audience, The Loxleys & the War of 1812 takes us right inside this conflict, lets us feel, hear, and see its effects on an average family, so that we come to viscerally understand the truth of what Eliza Loxley writes in her journal: that in war, “no side has a monopoly on atrocities.”
