CAPTAIN GEORGE HOWARD, United States Army: The Chronicles of a Connecticut Yankee on the Northern Frontier of the War of 1812

CAPTAIN GEORGE HOWARD, United States Army:  The Chronicles of a Connecticut Yankee on the Northern Frontier of the War of 1812
by Kloten, Gregory editor

1-204340

Based on a letter book compiled by Captain George Howard of the 25th Connecticut Infantry, the book recounts his experience in the War of 1812 and his later career in the Customs Service. A native of Windsor, CT, Howard served in most of the major campaigns on the northern frontier under several of the worst and a few of the best American officers in the war, of the latter most notably Winfield Scott.

Howard's autobiography illuminates the lives of young men who came of age in the early Republic. Not only does he faithfully record his war experiences, he traces his life before and after the war. He provides an autobiographical sketch of his life until 1812 and letters interspersed with journal entries and commentary chart the course of Howard's military and postwar bureaucratic career. Howard's account provides the perspective of a lower level officer on the conduct of the war, as well as changes in the character of the federal government and the economic expansion that occurred after the war. 224 pages and includes maps, illustrations, appendices, and bibliography.
