comment Where were the Mormons going?
We have a pretty good Mormon following on Christianity.Se. (I'm not one, but we all stick together.). If you don't get a great answer here, you may want to trying asking there as well.

comment Does US law permit spending taxpayers' money to support foreign political parties?
@T.E.D. What law prohibits foreign donors from giving to American political campaigns? Indeed, it would run counter to the Buckley decision to make a law to this effect. The right to contribute to a campaign is protected free speech.

comment When did the American War of 1812 actually end?
The Americans also surely realized that as the Napoleonic War was winding down, the British would be able to spare capacity to focus on the Americas, something the fledgling country would have been ill-equipped to handle. In both the Revolution and the War of 1812, we outlasted the British - we didn't really "defeat" them.
