MARYLAND STATE SOCIETY UNITED STATES DAUGHTERS OF 1812

The Chasseur Chapter (Montgomery, Frederick, Washington, Allegany, & Garrett Counties)

The Chasseur Chapter was organized with twelve members on February 23, 2014 in Frederick, Maryland. The Organizing President was Violet Eaton Kraft. Mrs. Kraft proudly accepted the Chapter Charter from the President National on August 10, 2014, in Frederick, Maryland.

The Chasseur is named in honor of the Baltimore clipper ship, Chasseur that was built in 1812 in Fells Point, Maryland by Thomas Kemp. The Chasseur was instrumental in capturing many British ships during the War of 1812. In fact, in 1814, Captain Thomas Boyle declared that the British Isles were under a naval blockade by the Chasseur alone. The Chasseur was later nicknamed the Pride of Baltimore by the newspaper, the Niles Register.
