  • Notes 
    • Unwilling participants in the War of 1812
      About 20 Mennonite men were conscripted to haul supplies for an 1813 engagement


      ...No one was exempt from non-combatant duties, although some resisted at times. Some were fined heavily in court. Cornelius Pannebecker removed the wheels from his wagon to save it, although his horse and son were still conscripted. Elizabeth (Gabel) Bechtel was threatened at sword-point by an officer who knew she was hiding oxen, which he sought for a massive-scale transport operation to the Detroit River.
