Welcome to our website. Take a look around and see what our Michigan State Society has been doing. You will find contact information for each of the three chapters in our state as well as files to open to view some of our past activities.
The Bicentennial of the War of 1812 has come to and end. I hope you have taken the time to reflect on how important the War of 1812 was to our country and how important it is to continue to honor those patriots from that war.
As President of the Michigan State Society, my goals are to publish the book of the War of 1812 Veterans who are buried in Michigan that our members have been working on for a long time, to preserve our Michigan State Society history by digitizing it and to increase membership.
