FOUGHT IN THE WAR OF 1812
Graves of 218 Americans, Enemies of
England, Decorated at Princeton
for First Time.
A half century after the origination
of a memorial, or decoration day, on
which tribute Is paid to those who
have died In the nation's wars, the
grnves of 218 Americans who fought
In the War of 1812 were decorated for
the first time last Memorial day.
At Princeton, England, there are the
graves of 218 AmeHcuns who died
while held prisoners of war In Dart
moor prison. The parish church In
the little village of Princeton was buljt
by the labor of tbese and a number of
French prisoners. n
For many years the sod which cov
ered the remains of these sons of
America was unmarked. Finally one
of the governors of the prison had a
cairn and a monument erected to mark
the resting plnce of England's worthy
enemies. Their graves, however, had
never been decorated In the manner In
which the graves of other American
heroes are decorated until the London
post of the American Legion plnced a
large wreath over their resting place
on last Memorial day.
On thq snme day that the graves of
