British Prisoners Held in U.S. during War of 1812

From The National Archives (ADM 103/466), this resource consists of digital photos of the original record-books in which the prisoners' names were written. It includes nearly 15,000 names of army and navy prisoners, plus those taken from merchant vessels and privateers. The books are arranged by the first letter of the surname only, i.e., all the names starting with B are together, but not in alphabetical order.
