Hi! I am a graduate student at the University of Maine currently writing a doctoral dissertation about the War of 1812. Specifically, I am writing about smuggling during the war and the military & privateers involvement in stopping smuggling. Does the Society have primary sources concerning the War of 1812? I like your website, it has some good info. -Josh Smith, UMaine.

hey great site!
I only wish that my family
participated, but no, they were pacifists who lived
in the invaded colony of Upper Canada.
well anyway, great site, and keep up the good work!

I have recently been studying Oliver Wendell Homes, and was distressed when I saw that you have his purpose for the poem to be a tribute to "Old Glory."  Though I can understand the logic behind your reasoning, his main purpose in writing "Old Ironsides" was to save the Warship CONSTITUTION from being scrapped for it's material.  I would ask that you please consider this, and if there is something that you have found that I have not, concerning this poem, please post it on your website.   Thank you
