Hello -

This sounds like a trick question but the actual date of the conflict lasted from 1812 to 1814. In this case, "the process of naming the War of 1812 for its year of commencement, even though it lasted into 1814, developed slowly through the 19th century," according to the Canadian Encyclopedia.
