is one of three websites providing information about the War of 1812 and those who helped mold our nation and ensure its survival.

The purposes of this society shall be to promote patriotism, to preserve and increase knowledge of the history of the American people by the preservation of documents and relics, the marking of historic spots, the recording of family histories and traditions, the celebration of patriotic anniversaries, teaching and emphasizing the heroic deeds of the civil, military and naval life of those who moulded this government between the close of the American Revolution and the close of the War of 1812, to urge Congress to compile and publish authentic records of men in civil, military and naval service from 1784 to 1815 inclusive, to maintain at National Headquarters a museum and library of memorabilia of the 1784-1815 period.


SEE SECOND WEBSITE FOR -2015 -2018 and NEW INFORMATION ON THE WAR OF 1812, CLICK HERE. *Hard copies of PR Scrapbooks are maintained at
U.S. Daughters of 1812 headquarters in Washington, D.C.

The National Society United State Daughters of 1812 was organized on January 8, 1892 on the anniversary of the Battle of New Orleans. The society requires lineal descent from an ancestor who rendered military, naval or civil service between the close of the American Revolutionary War in 1783 and the close of the War of 1812 in 1815, Military service may be in any one of sixteen recognized engagements between those dates

INFORMATION REGARDING
THE CREATION AND CONTENT
OF THIS ARCHIVED 2006-2015 ONLINE SCRAPBOOK

This website began during the administration of Nona  Quinn, President General National (2009-2012) who launched a campaign intended to revive interest in the War of 1812.  President Quinn  urged U.S. Daughters of 1812 to Prepare for the Bicentennial  of the War of 1812 by identifying 1812 patriot ancestors and history based websites and by developing chapter websites, publicizing 1812 historical landmarks, persons and events including grave markings within their own states.  U.S. Daughters of 1812 were , at the same time, enouraged to provide local papers with press releases and spot announcements for patriotic observances and to begin the process of developing a War of 1812 bibliography and classroom activities forchildren   The result of this last has been the inclusion of maps and activities “for kids>” which are included on our PR websites and have proven to be great interest generators.

President General Virginia Apyar’s presidency, 2012-2015, began in 1812 withDaughters Celebrating the War of 1812 with a fury that saw members traveling to Halifax, Canada and Dartmoor in England to mark the graves of American seamen. It was privateers who threatened Great Britain on the high seas and who were a major factor in Britain’s willingness to sign the Treaty of Ghent, and not Andrew Jackson whose victory at New Orleans occurred weeks after the ink was dry on the Treaty of Ghent.
There is much to see and learn about the War of 1812, and, hopefully, thanks to the efforts of many U.S. Daughters of 1812, this war and the contribution made by many, some recognized, and many more to be recognized, this war will not be forgotten.
I hope that anyone visiting this website will find time to visit our current website for the period (2015-2018) and see the wonderful collection of chapter and state society  Newsletters which has been added.  http://war1812trails.org/  

I want to personally encourage members to continue donating books about the War of 1812 and about those who fought in it and to remind them not to stop there. We need to publicize book donations and all of other activities in print.. I am glad to report that several states Publicity Chairman have turned in scrap book publicity items featuring their members donating books and commemorating important events. Those of you who are in the process of submitting Scrapbook items need to remember to follow instructions provided in the Public Relation NIP Letter and our National Handbook on pages 77-78.

Seven State Organizations organizations have published Marking and Grave Location and Ancestor Indexes: Georgia, Kentucky, Illinois, North Carolina and Tennessee, Connecticut and Arkansas which created a Virtual Find A Grave website on its website..
