  2. I immediately thought of the 1812 overture. But I am sure that this is not connected with music. Stunning by the water.

    1. The War of 1812 (referred to as the "Second War of Independence" by some American historians) was a 32-month military conflict between the United States on one side, and on the other Great Britain, The United States declared war in 1812 for several reasons, including trade restrictions brought about by Britain's continuing war with France, the impressment of American merchant sailors into the Royal Navy, British support of American Indian tribes against American expansion, outrage over insults to national honour after humiliations on the high seas, and possible American interest in annexing British North American territory (part of modern day Canada) which had been denied to them in the settlement ending the American Revolutionary War.
