Abstract:

National Archives microfilm reproduction of 105 bound volumes containing two series of military bounty land warrants issued between 1815 and 1858 to veterans of the War of 1812, and 4 volumes of indexes to the warrants. The first series of warrants resulted from acts passed December 24, 1811 (2 Stat. 669), January 11, 1812 (2 Stat. 672), and May 6, 1812 (2 Stat. 729), in which Congress provided that noncommissioned officers and soldiers serving for 5 years (unless discharged sooner), or their heirs, would be entitled to 160 acres of land from the public domain in partial compensation for military service. A total of 6 million acres of land were to be surveyed and reserved for this purpose, 2 million acres in each of the Territories of Michigan, Illinois, and Louisiana (present-day Arkansas).

The second series resulted from an act of December 10, 1814 (3 Stat. 147), by which Congress doubled the acreage offered to soldiers enlisting after that date. Warrants issued under this act were called double bounty warrants. The warrants contain the following information (1) the name of the veteran, (2) his rank on discharge from military service, (3) his company, regiment, branch of service, (4) the date the warrant was issued, and (5) usually the date the land was located and the page on which the location is recorded in Abstracts of Military Bounty Land Warrant Locations. They are arranged according to warrant number and are in chronological order. For warrants appearing in this microfilm pulication, issue dates of the first series (Act of 1812, 160 acres) extend from August 19, 1815, to June 2, 1858, and for the second series (Act of 1814, 320 acres) from August 23, 1815, to April 1, 1839. Four indexes, applying to both series, have been included on roll 1.
