Classification: Military
This appeared in the Apr. 9, 1852 issue of the Rockland (Maine) Gazette:

"The Bounty Land Bill, recently passed by Congress, not only provides for the assignability of land warrants, but it gives bounty land to all who performed military service for thirty days or more in the war of 1812, and in the Aroostook war, under the State or United States authority; provided their services have been paid by the government. The 'Aroostook soldiers' have been paid agreeably to the provisions of the bill."
