Sociologists and historians make frequent use of the many records created by the War of 1812 soldiers’ quest for bounty land. Genealogists should do the same, but few know how to make their way through these valuable records. What’s the difference between an application and a warrant? Why does it matter if my soldier was in the Army or the militia? What on earth is scrip? Learn more about the treasures that can be found by courageous researchers.
