Muster Rolls of the Soldiers of the War of 1812

This work is an exhaustive list of soldiers who were detached from the regular North Carolina Militia for service in the War of 1812. Arranged by company and by county regiment, the book is, in fact, a complete muster roll of the state's 12,000 active wartime participants, and it constitutes an important sourcebook in the literature of North Carolina genealogy. The lists, of which there are hundreds, contain the names of both officers and men and are presented in two separate sections: one covering the detachments of 1812, the other the detachments of 1814. It should be emphasized that the Clearfield edition of the Muster Rolls is the only edition with an index, as it includes the complete name index to the 12,000 or so names listed in the volume that was compiled by Maurice S.

Membership growth “hasn’t kept pace with our overall audience growth,” so the plan is to double down on it, offering members more opportunities to engage and get involved across the newsroom, and boosting newsletter... From our founding, the Tribune’s diverse revenue model — drawing on foundations and corporations as well as individuals to fund our operations — has been one of our biggest strengths. But ultimately, our sustainability as a news organization will depend heavily on the last of that group: fellow Texans who believe enough in our mission to invest in it. Raise a lot more cash. Since launch, about 10 percent of the Tribune’s revenue has come from individual memberships. The Tribune wants to increase its revenue by 10 percent each year, and “given the capacity of high-net-worth individuals, deep-pocketed foundations and corporate behemoths in our midst, we believe it’s highly attainable. ” One pathway there: “gala fundraisers around the state…mission-focused, talent-driven evening events in Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio. modernizing the Tribune’s tech stack (“our CMS must continuously evolve to work seamlessly with the stories and readers of tomorrow”), especially on mobile. making its reporting more “ground-up” and “community-driven” to better reach “Texans who’d like to be engaged in what we cover but struggle to find a way in”. doing a better job of connecting editorial and audience data to “gain better insights...
