The intention behind this volume is to provide a factual and impartial account of the various Divisions, Brigades, Regiments, and Companies, along with the rank of every citizen who served their country on September 12th and 13th, 1814, at North Point and Fort McHenry. The information is taken from original rolls on file in the 3rd auditor’s office of the War Department. However, if there are any errors, such as the inclusion of names of individuals who were not present at the battle, or the omission of others, or the incorrect rank of any of the officers, then such errors are solely the responsibility of their accounting officer. There was no intention to withhold the recognition of anyone’s service, nor to exaggerate any achievements.
The Maryland Historical Magazine has been continuously published by the Maryland Historical Society in Baltimore, MD on a quarterly basis since 1906. The magazine strives to bring together the “professional” and the “popular” to engage a broad audience while publishing serious research on Maryland and the region. The earlier editions tended to have a more genealogical basis to them than those of the past few years. This cooperative imaging project of the Maryland Historical Society and the Maryland State Archives is provided to the public free of charge.
