William Pinkney

Pre-War:  Pinkney and James Monroe made a futile attempt to devise a treaty between the United States and Great Britain.


William Pinkney "served as a major in the Maryland militia during the War of 1812 and was wounded at the Battle of Bladensburg, Md., in August 1814; elected to the Fourteenth Congress... ."

There is a biography of Mr. Pinkney written by his nephew.
