Mr. Johnson’s book purports to identify all persons from Vermont who signed up to participate in various campaigns of the War of 1812. Arranged alphabetically, the soldiers are, in all cases, identified by company name and the source of information, and, in the majority of instances, by campaign(s) and length of service. In those cases where the soldier died in combat we learn the circumstances of his death and, frequently, if his pension was applied for, the name of his widow. With references to more than 12,000 officers and enlisted men.
