Description


Some call the War of 1812 a forgotten war, a conflict that doesn't resonate in the same way as the American Revolution or the Civil War, yet this war was a key event in the development of a young America. Forgotten, too, are the many frontiersmen who fought to preserve American soil against the British and their Indian allies...men who lived, hunted and farmed along the largely unsettled lands between the Appalachian mountains and the Mississippi River, and who cherished freedom above all else. In a search to see if a long lost ancestor had served in the War of 1812, author Glen Conner discovered the names and stories of many veteran frontiersmen who lived in the central border areas of Kentucky and Tennessee. Frontiersmen in the War of 1812 follows the war from its origins to its conclusion, then provides an in-depth look at land grants and pensions issued to frontiersmen following the war, over 150 biographical portraits of the men who served, and geographical features and place names. May these heroes of old be remembered for all time.
