Re: Ideal W1812 bibliography?
I am sure that, as in the book listed below, others will have additions to the list.
I suggest that as was the case of the Sutlers list, that you make a word file and post it in the file section and as additions are sent to you, the file can be updated and then available to all, without upteen unclipped replies going on and on ad infinitum.
My humble contribution for consideration for addition to your list:

I'm using Cooper's authentic dialogue of the era to help me with writing my
screenplay about my ggg grandfather who was a privateer during the War of 1812.
[the entire ideal bibliography was attached at this point, because Diane just hit "reply" to a prior message that had it (and other stuff too, for that matter) and didn't snip it out. Diane is already on moderated status, so I did. Digest users: you're welcome. I also modified the subject line to something more useful. - Jim Yaworsky]
