War of 1812 -Powder Magazine

Greetings all,

I'm part of a group of grad students working on a public history project recreating a model of the Newport Barracks, KY as it appeared during War of 1812 period.  Currently, we're looking at the powder magazine structure, which has been described as  "beehive" in appearance.  Can anyone tell me if there are any military manuals/regulations that would govern the construction of such a structure during this period? 

Thanks for reading!



Re: Malmquist on Bonin, 'Virginia in the War of 1812'

While researching some other matters, it did happen that a little about the War of 1812 appeared in consequences and events associated with 1812 experience; quite likely, directly or indirectly, related to Virginia.

They seemed quite mudane at the time but perhaps this was too short a conclusion, especially given this Review of the Thesis herein published, and under discussion.
