War of 1812 event







Thousands of men of African Heritage had served in the U.S. Navy since its formation in 1794. By 1813, Congress passed a law authorizing the enlistment of "persons of color, natives of the U. States in the navy."

During the War of 1812, black men accounted for about 27 percent of enlisted men on all ships and all stations in the United States Navy. Obtaining crewmen was generally the responsibility of the commanding officer, and at sea the color of a man’s skin was much less important than his skills and abilities.

While prejudice and racism existed, by 1814 black and white soldiers and sailors fought and died side by side in line of battle and at the helm on warships, gun decks to fight for America's Independence and freedom.
