The Experience of An American Soldier in the War of 1812-14

The good it would do us to have some knowledge of how another looked upon our land and some of its inhabitants a hundred years ago. To that end, the speaker tells the story of Samuel, White, of Adams County, Pennsylvania, published at Baltimore in 1830, with the title "History of the American troops during the late war under the command of Colonels Fenton and Campbell." Captain White's story gives an account of the crossing of the Lake from Erie to Long Point, also the crossing of Niagara by the troops under Generals Gaines, Brown, Scott and Porter. Also told is the taking of Fort Erie, the battle of Chippewa, the imprisonment of Col. Bull, Major Galloway, and the author (then a captain) and their treatment: together with an historical account of the Canadas.
