About Samuel Nye

Served in the War of 1812 as a Major in the 3rd regiment of the US Artillery. In 1812 he enlisted in the 3rd Regiment, US Artillery. "Samuel's regiment had been doubled in size early in 1812 in order to man defensive batteries on the shore of lake Ontario. During his three years in uniform, he served in New York State as a doctor. His worn set of surgical instruments may still be seen at York Institute in Saco. He may also have practiced medicine at times after the war, but his correspondence reveals that he was primarily in business. There are references to "another barrel of flour", "the lot of caljco", etc." - pg 73 - Legendary Lives
