James D. Craig's Scrapbook

Source [Scrapbook Excerpt]

James D. Craig's scrapbook (1814-1815) is housed at the Alabama Dept. of Archives and History in Montgomery, Alabama.  A description [link added]:
James D. Craig was a captain of a Tennessee volunteer company, Jackson's Army, in the War of 1812, and later served at Fort Claiborne, Ala. in the Creek and Seminole Wars.  ...the collection deals with the activities of the 2nd Regiment of Tennessee at Mobile and Fort Claiborne, Ala... .

History of Alabama and dictionary of Alabama biography, Volume 3 has a biography of a James D. Craig [he was probably the son of Captain James D. Craig whose scrapbook was referenced above].
