J.A. Rockwell Report Against Peter Rambo

 Collection
Identifier: MS-3599
Abstract

This report, presented to the 29th U.S. Congress, denies Rambo's request for financial relief from losses sustained during his service in the War of 1812. It includes a copy of Rambo's petition, recounting his money-making efforts and his losses when Fort Niagara was taken, and an affidavit by Amos Roberts, a fellow soldier. Both of these documents had been verified in 1829 by Josiah Rogers, a justice of the peace in Sevier County, Tennessee.

Dates: 1846 May 4
