What was left of the American Army was back in Washington That morning Gen- eral William H. Winder had about 3,000 troops, he now had little over 1,200. Most of these troops were members of the first and second Regiments of the Virginia militia. Andrew Gwinn was a member of the second Regiment. These men stayed on only because they were Vitginians. They didn't want to see the British take their Capitol. They could have stopped the British a Bladens- burg earlier that day had not Gen. Winder ordered them to retreat back to the city. Now they sat on the capitol grounds wondering what Winder would do next James Monroe, Secretary of War, Armstrong, and Gen. Wi- nder studied over possible me- ans of defense of the city. Armstrong suggested that they hold up in the Capitol building. Winder argued that the British could slarve them out. He said tha! their only hope was to retreat to Georgetown. He th- ought there they might be able to reorganize their army. ,lames Mom-oe agreed. With that the order was pass- ed out. The Capitol couldn't be saved by retreating to George- (own. As far as Ihe militia was concerl|ed the goverllnlcll[ was giwng the country back to thc British and there wasn't any- thing they coold do to stop it.

Dolly Madison would not leave the President's House as long as that portrait was hang- ing on the wall. The frame was screwed to the wall so tightly that nobody could get it down. Finally an ax was used to chop the frame apart. After seeing to the safety of the portrait Dolly headed for Georgetown. Madison stayed at the house for over an hour resting. The day had been a bad one for the 6a-year-old President. By 5:30 he felt it was time to go. All sorts of people were still flowing by the Presidents House. Ord- ers were sent to Captain Tin- gey to destroy the Navy Yard and the lower bridge. A few moments later the bridge was blown up. Tingey warned the people still living in the area thai the Navy Yard would go next. tle told them he would wait till the last possible mom- ent before setting the torch to it. Quiet slowly settled over the city, Four hours had passed. Where were the British? In Bladensburg Major Gen- eral Robert Ross, commander of the British troops, made preparations to advance to Washington. After a three-hour rest he ordered the 3rd Bri- gade, about 1,460 men , to ad- vance ot the front. The rest would follow later. Another hour and they were entering the city. Most of the troops stop- ped just inside the city. Only Ross and a few troops continued forward. They moved down Mary!an0 5enue and headed directly for the Capitol. A few more seconds .... then musket fire shattered the night. Four men were hit, one killed, and Ross's horse was shot from Cooperalive Forsl Management Foresers, Sh(:lby L, Spr':ldlm, Jr. and Ker,)'..elh B.

No one ever knew who fired the shots. Soon the house was a blaze. Then billows of flame and smoke filled the sky and deep explosions shook the ground. Captain Tingey was burning the Navy Yard. His job done, he stepped into a beat and rowed for Alexandria. The British set fire to other buildings.. Now for the Capitol itself. They fired into the wind- ows, then waited. With no sign of activity in the building they broke down the doors and roam- ed through the empty rooms. They turned sightseers for over an hour. Now it ,was time to destroy the building. They fir- ed rockets into the roof, but nothing happened. It was cov- ered with sheet iron. Finally they piled the furniture in the center of the Hall of Represe- entatives. Added rocket pow- der, and fired rockets directly into the pile. Within minutes the building was ablaze it was 10:00 P.M. Flames surged through the doors and windows up thr- ough the roof, and fanned out into the nitht. Four more buildings were soon blazing. The British moved on to the Presidents House. inside they repeated the busin- ess of piling together all the furniture in one room. Torches were set and it went up in one roaring bonfire. Last of all was the Treasury Building. They found no money but there were plenty of records to burn. With the Navy Yard and other build- ings burning it looked as th- ough all of Washington was burning. Now the nights work was done. As they left the city they stopped at the offices of the National Intelligencer, the city newspaper. A soldier broke into the office and brought out the last issue. It read, "We feel assured that the number and bravery of our men will afford complete protection to the city ."
