War of 1812 Casualty Database

"Time does not diminish their sacrifice" - Lieutenant General Jonathon Riley

Welcome to the War of 1812 Casualty Database

The goal of this database is to list, in one location, the names of the soldiers in British Regiments of Foot that were Killed, Died or Deserted during the War of 1812.  This will be an ongoing project, but hopefully all the British Regiments will be added by the start of the Bicentennial in June, 2012.
