Battle Between The Constitution & Guerriere 1812.

I well not give the account of the battle but I will list those who fought in the battle, and were either killed, wounded or came up missing.  One of the hardest thing as a surname rearcher is to find the names of those who fought for the other side.  We Americans of 1776 and 1812, always went into great detail of a battle, But rarely gave the names of the enemy who fall in battle even if they know who they were.  Of couse it was the  same for the British.  It's true a lot of names can be found on pay rolls rosters and so on, but to fine names of those that fall in battel is a lot harder.  I guess are forefathers thought it was more inportant to record these battles in great detail for future generations.  It's true these stories and reports are inportant to us for we can learn why these battles happen and what went on in these balltes.  But for generations after who are trying to find their roots.  The names are more inportant then the accounts of battle.
