“The Michigan War of 1812 Commission is thankful for the wonderful participation by so many historical and civic organizations across the state,” said Phil Porter, Chairman. “More than 125 organizations helped offer more than 250 public events and 14 exhibits to the people of our state.” Porter is Director of Mackinac State Historic Parks. The Commission also produced a 30 minute documentary, “Michigan at War: The Struggle for the Old Northwest, 1812-1815.”

Due to extensive work by Cindy Krueger, DNR mobile and web specialist, we have completed posting the “Michigan War of 1812 Final Report” at www.michigan.gov/war1812. The full, final report, including 17 appendixes (A-Q), is 436 pages.

However, the report is only13 pages. For those with less time, we prepared a one-page summary. To locate specific information, please check the “Guide to the Appendixes.” This site will remain in place through December 2015: http://www.michigan.gov/war1812.

A War of 1812 archived site will remain indefinitely: http://wayback.archive-it.org/418/20121221153127/https://www.michigan.gov/dnr/0,4570,7-153-10369_59572---,00.html#
