    Seeking information about unit formed near Harper's Ferry, VA

    David Thompson Newbie

      How can I find the name of a unit formed near Harper's Ferry, VA near start of War of 1812? Family stories say an ancestor, Joseph C. Thompson, who was employed at the arsenal at Harper's Ferry, VA, joined a military unit there and fought in the War of 1812.  Unit supposedly was at the battle of Stone Mills in Canada where he was taken prisoner.
