I had that argument when we were in a museum in Boston. Some geezer was adamant that they won the war. I pointed out that they tried to invade us but we repelled all of their attacks and, for good measure, we burned down the White House. Sounds like we kicked ass, with a lot of help from our Native Indians, of course.
