John Jenkins Designs 1812M-05 Marine Marching - USMC 1814

Alternating with the American Civil War U.S. Marines will be several sets of U.S. Marines from the War of 1812. This period was full of activity for the Marines. Starting with the fights with the Barbary corsairs, and continuing throughout the War of 1812. The Marines were to take part in virtually every action at sea, on the Great Lakes, and also in many engagements on land. A section of the line at New Orleans were held by the Marines at this battle. Therefore they were extremely active despite the strength of the corps only averaging about 1,000 officers and men.
