The Society of the War of 1812 in the State of Ohio

Organized January 8, 1895

Judge Advocate, William Huber reports on Ft. Amanda Progress

Finally after years of erosion to the Fort Amanda Memorial Park cemetery, they are doing something about it. The cemetery was in danger of falling into the river and this was brought to the state’s attention over 6 years ago. This was the location of an 1812 fort and there are veterans graves there. The picture is of the dedication in 2007. The young man for an eagle scout project created the monuments to honor the 1812 veterans. I am on the far right and member John Smith is on the far left. The other gentlemen are from the local SAR. Construction work is set to begin this month to halt erosion along the Auglaize River at Fort Amanda Memorial Park on state Route 198, east of Spencerville. Ft. Amanda was one of a chain of supply forts en route from the Ohio river to the Army of the Northwest. – See more at: http://www.wapakdailynews.com/content/shoring-fort-amanda#sthash.t1IwkZRX.dpuf
