Abstract: "The Lewis Cass papers contain the political and governmental letters and writings of Lewis Cass... . At the outbreak of the War of 1812, he enlisted as a colonel in the 3rd Ohio Infantry under General William Hull."

"War of 1812 items include 16 receipts of payments to soldiers for transporting baggage, a payment of Cass' troops approved by Secretary of the Treasury Albert Gallatin, and a report made up of eyewitness accounts of General Hull's surrender at Detroit (September 11, 1812)."
