Migration to the Midwest was supercharged by veterans of the War of 1812 cashing into their bounties.

From bounty land to pensions, there is no shortage of genealogical records for soldiers in the War of

1812. Learn how and why these records were created, how to make sense of them, and what those

records can contain for your ancestors.
