A'''bounty land''' '''application''' typically provides the veteran's name, age, military unit, place of residence, term of service and, if applicable, the name of the veteran's widow or heir. <br>  
  
*[[15th Battalion, Arkansas Cavalry (Buster's)|15th Battalion, Arkansas Cavalry (Buster's)]]<br>"Units of the Confederate States Army" by Joseph H. Crute, Jr. contains no history for this unit.<br>

'''Bounty land warrant files''' should contain the issued warrant, letter of assignment (if he transferred his interest in the warrant to another person), and other pertinent papers.&nbsp; The'''warrant''' itself should include the name of the veteran, his rank at discharge, his branch of service and date the warrant was issued.&nbsp; Documents contain information similar to the pension files and include the veteran’s age and place of residence at the time of the application. &nbsp; Later laws allowed for the sale or exchange of warrants. Only a few soldiers actually received title to the bounty land or settled on it; most veterans sold or exchanged their warrants. <br>

The majority of bounty land acts were those of 1812&nbsp;(2 stat 278) which resulted in state value patents and scrip acts of 1847, 1850, 1852 and 1855 which yielded military land patents.&nbsp; <br>

~~As a result of the federal Bounty land act of 1812 (2 stat 278), warrants were granted to War of 1812 soldiers (in addition to Revolutionary War veterans).&nbsp; These warrants were exchanged for '''state value patents''' issued for the purchase of land located in the military land reserves of Illinois, Missouri, and Arkansas. The land patents for Illinois and Missouri were issued between 1817 and 1819, while those in Arkansas were not issued until 1819.&nbsp;

Following the passage of federal legislation in 1842 (2 stat......), veterans/heirs who qualified to receive federal bounty-land warrants or scrip could purchase acreage in any public domain land that lay west of the Mississippi River, north of the Ohio River and west of Pennsylvania and in the states of Louisiana, Florida, Alabama and Mississippi (excluding of Texas and Hawaii). This and subsequent scrip acts passed in 1847, 1850, 1852, and 1855 led to the purchase of '''military land patents''' in these areas.<br>See the map below general&nbsp; land location in these states.&nbsp;

War of 1812 Military Bounty Land Warrants, 1815-1858

General Background

In 1812 the federal government reserved a total of 6 million acres of the public domain land for War of 1812 veterans.  Initially, public domain land was offered as an incentive to serve in the military and later as a reward for service and could be claimed by the veteran or his heirs.

Between 1812 and 1842, these districts were located in Illinois, Missouri and Arkansas. 

   Cgmills  add more later
For further details refer to Hawkins, Kenneth, comp., Research in the Land Entry Files of the General Land Office, Reference Information Paper 114, (Washington, DC, NARA, Revised 2009)


How veteran/heir obtained federal bounty land

1  A veteran or his heir applied for a bounty land warrant at local courthouse.

2  If granted, the veteran was issued a warrant or script which could be exchanged for the purchase of  a      certain number of acres of land in one of the bounty land districts set aside for War of 1812 veterans. 

3   Having received notification of the land warrant number, the veteran could then apply for a land patent which granted him actual ownership of the land.   The application and supporting papers were not actually given to the veteran, rather a "Bounty Land Warrant File" was created and kept by the federal General Land Office or in the respective state agency.

Some of the original colonies and eastern states also sold land and awarded military bounty land warrants; for these records contact the appropriate state archives or historical society.

Cgmills check out the War of 1812 state wiki pages under "bounty land records" to see if we have referred the reader to these archives/historical societies.   If not, perhaps we can track down where these items can be found in each of these 8? states

For more information regarding application process and records generated hereby, refer to McFarland, Jan Bishop Bounty Land Warrants for Military Service in the War of 1812 (Accessed 26 July 2012).

Record Information and Components

Abounty land application typically provides the veteran's name, age, military unit, place of residence, term of service and, if applicable, the name of the veteran's widow or heir.

Bounty land warrant files should contain the issued warrant, letter of assignment (if he transferred his interest in the warrant to another person), and other pertinent papers.  Thewarrant itself should include the name of the veteran, his rank at discharge, his branch of service and date the warrant was issued.  Documents contain information similar to the pension files and include the veteran’s age and place of residence at the time of the application.   Later laws allowed for the sale or exchange of warrants. Only a few soldiers actually received title to the bounty land or settled on it; most veterans sold or exchanged their warrants.

Federal Legislation and Land Location

The majority of bounty land acts were those of 1812 (2 stat 278) which resulted in state value patents and scrip acts of 1847, 1850, 1852 and 1855 which yielded military land patents. 

~~As a result of the federal Bounty land act of 1812 (2 stat 278), warrants were granted to War of 1812 soldiers (in addition to Revolutionary War veterans).  These warrants were exchanged for state value patents issued for the purchase of land located in the military land reserves of Illinois, Missouri, and Arkansas. The land patents for Illinois and Missouri were issued between 1817 and 1819, while those in Arkansas were not issued until 1819. 

Following the passage of federal legislation in 1842 (2 stat......), veterans/heirs who qualified to receive federal bounty-land warrants or scrip could purchase acreage in any public domain land that lay west of the Mississippi River, north of the Ohio River and west of Pennsylvania and in the states of Louisiana, Florida, Alabama and Mississippi (excluding of Texas and Hawaii). This and subsequent scrip acts passed in 1847, 1850, 1852, and 1855 led to the purchase of military land patents in these areas.
See the map below general  land location in these states. 

The federal government gave no bounty land for military service after 1855, although some in progress land dealings were not finalized until later years. 


Finding Bounty Land Warrants and Case Files

Bounty land records often contain documents similar to those in pension files, with lots of genealogical information. Many of the bounty land application files relating to the War of 1812 service have been combined with the pension files. Bounty Land application files are housed at the National Archives.

Each warrant  was issued a identification number . between ...  and ... 

When warrant information is listed on the veteran's military pension application it consists of three distinct parts: the original warrant number, the number of acres granted, and the year the act was passed. ( Cgmills use WPG # as example .......... 50 represents 1850)

 

Some of these records have been microfilmed, War of 1812 Bounty Land Warrants, 1815-1858, NARA Series M848- 14 rolls, and are indexed on roll no. 1 for assignees in the Arkansas and Missouri military districts. 

Indexes

General Land Office records, kept by the Bureau of Land Managment,  can be searched by name for warrants and patents issued to War of 1812 veterans under a variety of bounty land acts passed between 1812 and 1855.  

   What about unindexed records and cancelled and relinquished case files??? Refer to  tract books at GLO-ESO headquarters.

~~Warrant Applications are indexed and can be found in Record Group 15 ~~ remember to also have "unindexed" files searched ~~ What about land-entry case files found in Record Group 15???Are these synonymous?

    Script files from 1830 in Record Group 49???? 

~~But if name of warrantee does not appear in index, search the War of 1812 Pension Application Index. War of 1812 bounty land applications are no longer kept separately but have been placed in their respective pension files, . ADD LINK
