The following is an interesting genealogy read from Prologue magazine, a publication of the National Archives. The article is titled “Leaving the Army During Mr. Madison’s War: Certificates of Discharge for the War of 1812” (Fall 2011), and is part of the magazine’s genealogy notes section. As this year marks the 200th anniversary of the beginning of the War of 1812, which was fought between June 18, 1812 and February 18, 1815, some may find this article helpful in researching their ancestors that fought in it.
