To John McIntyre 's list ("Less than glorious: the War of 1812," June 6) please add the name of William Henry Winder. Before he gained infamy as the architect of Washington's defense in 1814, Baltimore's most prominent lawyer, catapulted from civilian to brigadier general, cut his teeth at the 1813 Battle of Stoney Creek in Upper Canada. As second in command of a 2,700 man brigade, he had the distinction of being the second general officer captured in that night action.
