Rosters for East Tennessee in the War of 1812

Although many of us often forget that the United States even fought a second war against Great Britain, the 200th anniversary of the start of the War of 1812 is coming soon. Roberta Estes and Steve Smith have allowed me to post transcriptions of the rosters of three War of 1812 companies to add to the one I had posted, so I created an expanded section of the Web site, Rosters for East Tennessee in the War of 1812, to link to the known transcribed registers on the Internet. If you know of others, let me know.
