BOOKS - The Documentary History of the Campaign on the Niagara Frontier 1812-1814 [War of 1812]
By Ernest Alexander Cruikshank
Originally published Lundy's Lane Historical Society, Niagara, 1896-1907
This edition published by Global Heritage Press, Milton, 2007


Hardcover Editions
7" X 10"
Cruikshank's collection of correspondence and papers has provided generations of historians and genealogists with detailed firsthand accounts of events and personal experiences during The War of 1812. The original books (1896-1908) were printed on low quality paper that has dramatically deteriorated over the years, making original copies extraordinarily difficult to find and easily damaged when used. This new printing is on acid-free paper and bound in premium grade materials, designed for durability and attractive appearance.

The correspondence and papers that are included in The Documentary History of the Campaign on the Niagara Frontier provide the reader/researcher with accounts covering a wide spectrum -- "Most Secret and Confidential" military letters; returns of killed, wounded and missing; lists of civilian damages; lists of "persons plundered"; administrative correspondence; and other topics relating to the war, both military and civilian.

Each volume includes a comprehensive index. Volumes 1& 2 are bound into a single book because they are sequentially page numbered with a single index covering both volumes. Volumes 3 through 9 are all individually bound, each with its own index.

Every reference library in Canada and USA needs at least one set of The Documentary History of the Campaign on the Niagara Frontier 1812-1814 [War of 1812]
