I need some help identifying a War of 1812 unit and finding information about its movements and possible engagements. What I have is Bird B. Lavender from Tennessee enlisted in the U.S. Army 24th Light Infantry on 09 May 1813. On 18 September 1813 he is identified as a Corporal of the 2nd Tennesse Regiment U.S. Riflemen. he was discharged at Detroit on 30 June 1815, and his Bounty Land Warrant indicates he served in Captain Benjamin Johnson's Company.

I cannot seem to find anything about the above military units and would appreciate any help or direction. Thank you in advance.
