    For the officers, I think in LeCouture s book he mentions some of the Scottish officer s playing golf. But I haven t checked that, I am just going on memory.

      Forgive me if this has been discussed, but what were popular pastimes for
      soldiers during the War of 1812?
      There are plenty of material available for the US Civil War, cards, dice,
      base ball and such, but I have found it difficult to find out much about
      1812. I guess I am approaching it from the US side, but what did soldiers
      do?
      Are there many letters? Were there games?
      I was considering getting some period style paper and pencils and doing
      sketches during my off time in camp for my impression.

      I would appreciate any feedback.

      Thanks!!
