Where do we stand now?

We are at that point in the War of 1812 Preserve the Pensions campaign. That point where things start to drag, where it seems like we’ve been asking for your support for forever.

So we wanted to give you an idea of where we stand. How much we have raised so far, and how much we have to go. Certainly this effort is not over, but we have much to celebrate! As a community, we have done great things to preserve these incredibly important historic documents.

As of September 28, we have raised 57% of the necessary funds to save all of the War of 1812 pension files!

Please share this image with your community – your society, your corporate fundraising program, your friends, associaties and neighbors (oh, yes! Your very own FAN – thanks Elizabeth Shown Mills, CG!). Share with your local school district – as teachers are eager to utilize this material. Share with the area community college and university, share with your public library. The more attention we can get on this program, the easier it will be to achieve.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us directly via Facebook, Twitter, or email.
