[Hannah]: History and Livestock

My interests merge with those of my mother:
"...Canny New England farmers found they could circumvent [the ban on carrying their goods across the Canadian border during the war of 1812] by marching their livestock to the border, where the Canadian cohort would entice the animals across with a basket of corn."
- Donald R. Hickey, "American Trade Restrictions During the War of 1812", Journal of American History, December, 1981
