Constitution. 



Preamble. 

Whereas, In the Providence of God, victory having crowned the 
forces of the United States of America in upholding the principles of the 
Nation against Great Britain in the conflict known as the War of 1812; 
we, the survivors and descendants of those who participated in that contest, 
have joined together to perpetuate its memories and victories, to collect and 
secure for preservation, rolls, records, books and other documents relating 
to that period; to encourage research and publication of historical data, 
including memorials of patriots of that era in our National history; to care 
for and, when necessary, assist in burying actual veterans of that struggle; 
to cherish, maintain and extend the institutions of American freedom, and 
foster true patriotism and love of country. 

ARTICI.E I. 

NAME. 

This Society shall be known as the "General Society of the War of 
1812." 

ARTICI.E II. 

ORGANIZATION. 

P The General Society shall be composed of State Societies, which shall 
meet annually, on the day appointed therefor in their respective by-laws, 
and oftener if they shall deem it necessary. 

The State Societies shall choose annually such officers for their own 
government and in such manner as shall be set forth in their respective 
by-laws, and shall transmit annually to the General Society a list of the 
officers so chosen for the year and such other information as may be of 
interest to the Society at large. Each State Society shall conform in the 

8538-2 

(17) 



18 

character of its oflScials to those of the General Society, and shall regulate 
all matters respecting its own affairs, and shall judge of the qualifications of 
members therein. Provided, always, That the action of such State Society- 
be, in all cases, in conformity with the provisions of this Constitution. 



ARTICI.E III. 

OFFICERS AND EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE. 

The officers of the General Society shall consist of a President-General,

General and Assistant Secretary-General, a Treasurer-General and Assistant 
Treasurer-General, a Registrar-General, a Surgeon-General, a Judge-Advo- 
cate-General and a Chaplain-General. They shall be chosen by ballot at 
the regular meeting of the Society, by and from members in good standing, 
and shall serve until the next regular meeting or until their successors are 
duly chosen. 

There shall be an Executive Committee, consisting of the officers of the 
General Society and a delegate from each State Society, to be chosen by 
ballot at the regular meeting of the General Society, upon selection by the 
respective State delegation hereinafter provided for. It shall be the duty of 
said Committee, nine (9) members of which shall constitute a quorum, to 
supervise the affairs of the General Society, as well as the admission of 
State Societies, and transact such other business as may come before it. 
The said Committee shall meet in the City of Philadelphia, in the State of 
Pennsylvania, once in every six (6) months, during the time intervening 
between the meetings and subject to the approval of the General Society. 

ARTICLE IV. 

MEETINGS. 

The regular meeting of the General Society shall be held every second 
year, on or about the nineteenth day of June, being the anniversary of the 
declaration of war by the United States against Great Britain, and special 
meetings may be held upon the order of the President-General, or upon the 
request of two (2) State Societies. 

Such meetings shall consist of the officers of the General Society, each 
of whom shall be entitled to one vote and a representation not exceeding five 



19 

(5) delegates from each State Society (one of whom shall be the delegate 
to the Executive Committee of the General Society), which representation 
from each State Society shall be entitled to five (5) votes. 

At each meeting of the General Society, the time and place of which 
shall have been determined upon at the preceding meeting of the Society, 
the circular letters and other communications sent by the State Societies 
shall be considered, and where questions in dispute may be referred to it 
the General Society shall have power to act thereon, 

ARTICI.E V. 

FORMATION OF STATK SOCIETIES. 

The General Society shall be located in the City of Philadelphia, in the 
State of Pennsylvania. 

The Executive Committee thereof shall have the right at any of its 
meetings to warrant, constitute and recognize one State Society in any State 
or Territory of the United States, whenever ten (10) or more persons who 
are already members or are eligible to membership in this Society, and 
residing in said State or Territory, shall apply for authority to organize 
such Society, or where such Society may already be formed and is approved 
by this Society. 

The style and title of each State Society shall be as follows: "The 
Society of the War of 1812, in the State of " 

The members of each such State Society shall be borne upon the mem- 
bership roll of the General Society. 

ARTICIvE VI. 

MEMBERSHIP. 

Any male person above the age of twenty-one (21) years, who partici- 
pated in, or who is a lineal descendant of one who served during the 
War of 1812, in the army, navy, revenue-marine, or privateer service of 
the United States, offering proof thereof satisfactory to the State Society 
to which he may make application for membership, and who is of good 
moral character and reputation, may become a member of this Society 
when approved of by said State Society, under such regulations as it may 
make for passing upon applications for membership. 



20 

In case of the failure of lineal descendants of an actual participant in 
the War on behalf of the United States, one collateral descendant, who is 
deemed worthy, may be admitted to represent the said participant. 

Provided, always, That such representation shall be limited to the de- 
scendant of either a brother or sister of the participant in the War, in right 
of whose services application for membership is made. 

Every application for membership shall be made in writing, upon such 
form as may be set forth by this Society for that purpose, which application 
shall be made in duplicate, and one copy thereof filed in the archives of the 
General Society. 

A member in good standing may file one or more supplemental appli- 
cations, based upon the services in the War of 1812 of either his direct 
ancestor or of one collateral, who failed to leave lineal descendants, which 
supplemental application shall be balloted upon in the same manner and 
with the same effect as upon original applications. 

No State Society shall elect to membership persons resident within the 
territory of another State Society, except upon the written consent given 
in advance by the Board of Directors of the latter Society. But members 
changing residence from one State to another, or coming within the juris- 
diction of a new State Society, may, at their option, retain membership in 
the State Society in which they were originally admitted or to which they 
may have been transferred. 

A member of any State Society may be admitted to membership by 
action of the Board of Directors of another State Society within the bounds 
of which he is resident upon satisfactory proof of his membership and good 
standing in the Society from which he comes and subject to the rules and 
regulations of the Society he enters; and thereupon his membership in the 
first Society shall terminate. 

An initiation fee shall not be twice required. 



ARTICLE VII. 

TRANSMISSION OF LISTS OF MEMBERS AND DUES FROM STATE SOCIETIES. 

The Secretary of each State Society shall transmit to the Secretary of 
the General Society a list of the members thereof, together with a list of 
those from whom said members derive claim to membership, and thereafter, 



21 

upon the admission of additional members, the Secretary thereof shall 
transmit to the General Society such similar information respecting said 
members. 

Each State Society shall pay into the treasury of this Society an entrance 
fee of ten dollars, and remit annually thereafter the sum of twenty-five cents 
for each and every member in good standing on the rolls of such State Society. 
so reported on January first of each year. 

ARTICI.E VIII. 

INSIGNIA. 

The insignia of the Society shall consist of a badge of gold, pendant 
from a ribbon. Said badge shall be in the form of a Maltese cross (emblem- 
atic of faith in the justice of our cause), between four (4) golden eagles 
(symbolizing the four sections — north, south, east, and west — of our common 
country), and resting upon an anchor of gold (representative of the Ameri- 
can Navy, by which so many glorious victories of the War of 1812 were 
achieved). The arms of the cross to be enameled in scarlet with a white 
border and to bear the insignia, in gold, of the four (4) arms of service 
(infantry, cavalry, artillery, and naval), and in the centre thereof a medallion 
of dark blue enamel, with the figures 1812 thereon in gold, surrounded by a 
band of black enamel, bearing eighteen (18) stars in gold, representing the 
number of States of the Union during the period of conflict. The reverse of 
said insignia to bear in the centre of the cross a wreath of oak leaves in gold, 
one-half inch in diameter, surrounded by rays, and in conformity with the 
design submitted to the General Society. The anchor and cross to be sus- 
pended from the ribbon by a ring of gold. 

The ribbon shall be of watered silk, dark blue in the centre, with white 
and black stripes on the sides successively, and edged with scarlet; the 
entire ribbon to be one and one-half inches in width and the same dimen- 
sions in displayed length. 

The insignia shall be worn on the left breast by the members of the 
Society at all general meetings, on all occasions of ceremony, or when they 
shall assemble for any stated purpose or celebration. Officers and past 
officers of the General Society and of the State Societies may wear the 
insignia suspended from a neck ribbon. On all other occasions, other than 
those specified above, members may wear a rosette of the prescribed ribbon 
and pattern in the upper buttonhole of the left lapel of the coat, which 



22 

rosettes, like the insignia, shall be procured and issued by the Secretary- 
General of the Society, by whom a record of all such issues to members 
will be kept. The insignia shall never be worn as an article of jewelry or
