Excerpt from The Diary of Benjamin F. Palmer: Privateersman
There are five books in English, one in French and three magazine articles which form the library to which we refer for all we know of a place which was so important in the War Of 1812.
In the heart Of the Dartmoor country in Southern England is a spot which was a desolate peat bog up to 1805. Then, England and France being at war, more room for French prisoners was needed, and the granite structure destined to 'unpleasant notoriety as Dartmoor prison was begun. The buildings, which at one time held nearly men, were first occupied in 1809. The best known incident Of the prison history is the Dartmoor Massacre, April 6, 1815.
Now that an American Memorial has been placed in the Church at Prince Town, in Dartmoor, it may be regarded as one of the significant signs that a war between England and The United States is quite an impossible thing to contemplate. The memorial is a large stained glass window, suitably inscribed, given by The National Society United States Daughters of 1812. It was formally presented by the president of the society June 4, 1910.
