Illinois State Archives Databases - Illinois War of 1812 Veterans
This database indexes the names of Illinois militiamen listed on the War of 1812 muster rolls included in the ninth volume of the Report of the Adjutant General of the State of Illinois (1902). The original muster rolls, first published in the Adjutant General's 1882 report, record approximately 1500 names appearing in 24 rosters of officers, companies or units. The rosters, covering the Indian wars of 1810-1814, are incomplete. Unfortunately the original records, having never been transferred to the Archives' custody, are lost. The 1902 publication also includes histories of the 1810-1814 Indian campaigns.
