Hello everyone,

Just doing some research I found one of my ancestors named George Richardson was a Captain of the 4th company of Colonel John Delong's First Regiment Ohio Militia during the War of 1812. As my main interest is Napoleonic, I am not aware of uniform details for this unit. Could anyone help me out? I have the regimental roll showing the names of the men of his company, but lacking uniform details.

Thank you for your help in advance. Being a Virginian I am not very aware of the Ohio history that my fathers side of the family has deep roots in since early 1700's.

Here is a plate from the War of 1812 Uniform site and the Ohio uniforms. It is a bit limited but useful.

If you need more information I have text and other plates that I have collected over the years. I could send them to you as attachments via email.

IronDuke596,

Thank you for your response. I saw that plate before from the great website for 1812! It looks like George Richardson might also have been a paid soldier of the 1st Sub Legion in 1793. I think I will need to reach out to the National Archives to get more information.

I appreciate your help!
