Military Uniform Epaulet- c. 1812

This gold braided epaulet, circa 1812, was worn as a decoration on part of a uniform. This epaulet is from the uniform of Captain Jacob A. Ball, who is believed to have been a Captain in the 1st Lincoln Militia during the War of 1812-1814. Jacob Ball shows up on the List of persons ordered into custody at Niagara Upper Canada, by order of Major General Dearborn, on the 19th, 20th, 21st June, 1813 during the occupation of Niagara by American forces.
