Excerpt from Harrison and Proctor: The River Raisin
Every available vessel and boat was pressed into service for the transportation of the prisoners taken at Detroit; but with every ch'ort, several weeks elapsedbefore the last of them were sent away. The regular troops were t... aken to F ort Erie on their way to Quebec and the Ohio volunteers and drafted militia were paroled and landed at Cleve land. He detachment of the 41st Regiment which had been drawn from the Niagara frontier was sent back without delay to meet the im pending attack ia that quarter and the militia volunteers from the counties of Lincoln, Norfolk and York returned to their homes, after doing duty as an escort to the prisoners on their way down the lake. Three hundred of the local militia were retained in service, part of whom were employed in the expedition to the River Raisin and Miami Rapids already described, while the remainder were engaged in disarming the Michigan militia, dismantling the batteries at Detroit ard removing the guns and military stores to Amherstburg. The ekecutive powers of civil governor of Michigan Territory were assumed by Colonel Procter, who appointed as Secretary for the time being, -lagnetas B. Woodward.
