Scope and Content Note

The War of 1812 Collection, MS.1846, consists of letters, documents, and other material all of which concerns the War of 1812. Although the bulk of the collection spans the years 1812-1815, there is a wide range of material dating from 1794 to 1960.

The collection reflects both a personal side of the war and a military side. The personal side is revealed by the great number of letters between friends, relatives, and family members concerning their opinions on the war, military activities, and the outlook of the country in general. There are also pages from personal journals, personal statements regarding the war, and certificates of membership in various military associations and clubs.

The military side of the war is reflected in correspondence to and from soldiers and government officials, military records including muster rolls, pay rolls, conscientious objector lists, and commissions, and in other military and government related material such as receipts, logbooks of U.S. vessels, minutes of meetings, and resolutions.

Many of the items in the collection are either typescripts, photostats, or xerox copies. This will be noted on the calendar.

 


Series Description

The collection has been divided into two main categories: Personal, and Military and Government. The Personal papers have been furthered divided into correspondence and general sections. The Military and Government papers have been furthered divided into correspondence, records, and general sections. There are also two other sections, one devoted to conscientious objector lists and one devoted to muster rolls.

The personal correspondence sections contain letters between friends, family members, and relatives concerning the war -- their opinions on disturbances and the general outlook of the country. There are letters dealing with the declaration of war, of rioting in Baltimore in 1812, preparations for military action in Baltimore, the Battle of Bladensburg, and the Battle of Baltimore. Some letters are from soldiers relating activities of their military life to parents and friends. 1808-1917.

The personal-general section consists of personal accounts of wartime activities, insurance policies, a passport, and certificates of membership in the Association of the Defenders of Baltimore. 1802-1878.

Military correspondence consists of letters written to and from military and government officials. The letters reveal activities during the war including shipping and blockades, foreign relations, troop movements, ammunition deliveries, and

battle descriptions. Correspondents include John H. Rogers, Ninian Pinkney, James McHenry, Thomas W. Veazey, William H. Nicholson, John Stricker, Robert Carr, and Florant Meline. Correspondence dates from 1794-1835.

The Military and Government records date from 1812-1936 and include uniform regulations, commissions, regimental orders, ration and provision returns, pay rolls, certificates of service, orderly books, and pensions.

The Military and Government records- general are made up of receipts for services offered to the military, bills, minutes of meetings, logs of the Surprize and Tonnant, descriptions of the Battle of Baltimore, and land bounty certificates for veterans. 1807-c. 1960.

Introduction

The War of 1812 Collection, MS.1846, is an artificial collection consisting of items originally located in the Vertical File. They were amassed together to form one collection because of their relationship to the War of 1812. The items were given at various times and by various donors and the provenance of some items is clouded. The collection consists of seven boxes and dates from 1794- c.1960 although the bulk of the material spans the years 1812-1815.
