scholarly exploration of that age. The Napoleon Series is dedicated
to the free exchange of ideas and information with good will,

Historic Fort Wayne Coalition
Our group is dedicated to preserving the history of
Michigan men and women who served their country between 1845 and
1973 who either sent material to or personally passed through
Historic Fort Wayne as a place of induction to United States
military service. We are busy helping the Fortís caretakers, the
City of Detroit Recreation Department with this effort in two major
ways. First, we are active in presenting high quality events that
provide ways for the public to enjoy Historic Fort Wayne and see
glimpses or how it would have looked when it was garrisoned. We are
also very busy in the effort of preserving and restoring as much of
the structures and facilities as possible on the Fort grounds.

Kentucky in the War of 1812
Following the 1813
Battle of River Raisin near present day Monroe Michigan, a
battle flag was captured from Kentucky soldiers by the British army.
There is sparse historical documentation of the origin and or
longevity of this flag. How long did it exist before it's capture?
Was this flag still in use for the duration of the 1812 war and
beyond? If there is a certainty, it is that this is a very rare
example of an early military flag carried to battle by volunteer
Kentuckians when their state was still in its infancy.
