George Ulmer of Lincolnville, Maine, was commissioned a colonel in the U.S. Voluntary Corps, U.S. Army, and he raised a regiment from the counties of Hancock and Washington in the District of Maine, Massachusetts. He had been a battalion commander in the militia.
The regiment had two missions assigned to them, one, to man the various forts in Maine after the governor of Massachusetts had refused to man these forts with the state militia, and the other, to suppress the smuggling trade between Maine and the maritime provinces of Canada.
In July 1813 the regiment replaced by the 34th Regiment of U.S. Infantry. When the enlistment of Ulmer’s regiment expired, many of the men enlisted in the 34th Infantry.
Salathiel Davis’ service record for the militia is located in the National Archives in roll box 54, roll record 1555, while his service record for his army duty in located in roll box 55, roll record 1556.
