  Norwegian flag of 1814
The Regent of Norway Christian Frederick (who was the Crown Prince of Denmark) declared on 27 February 1814 that the Norwegian flag was to be a red field with a white cross and the Norwegian lion facing the fly in the upper hoist corner – that is the Dannebrog with the addition of a lion.
This flag was the civil ensign from 1814 to 1821, 1814-1815 on all distances and 1814-1821 on shorter distances.
On Feb. 27, 1814, after the union with Denmark had been dissolved, Norway adopted as her flag The Dannebrog, with the addition, in the canton, of the Norwegian lion as it was at that time.

 Defeat and Final Victory, 1814 to 1815
By the early summer of 1814, the weather and "ill-judged" troop movements were blamed for a "prodigious mortality," and by mid-August 1814, when there were 100 men in the general hospital within the Plattsburg camp, Mann was the only physician available to care for them.
In 1814, the hospital at Williamsville, New York, did not occupy the same quarters it had used the previous year, and patients were sheltered in tents while awaiting the completion of buildings designed specifically for use as a hospital.
By the end of 1814, the regular troops in the 10th District were in good condition but the health of the men of the militia was reported to be suffering because of their lack of discipline.

 The Norwegian-Swedish War of 1814
In 1814, the Napoleonic Wars were all but  over -- Napoleon had abdicated (although he would come back to power briefly and fight at Waterloo in 1815) and the victorious British and their allies divvied up the booty.
In May 1814, the Norwegian constitution was written in a matter of days.  On May 17th, the constitution of Norway was signed and the Danish Prince, Christian Fredrik was, chosen as the King.
The reason the Norwegians agreed to a cease-fire was that, although successful in minor battles, the Norwegian army was in to poor a shape to wage a large battle against the larger Swedish forces.  But the fighting of August 1814, and the lives lost, was not in vain.

There, on the plains on Saxony, Napoleon suffered his greatest defeat, and the position of his ally, the Kingdom of Denmark-Norway, was weakened as a result.
On January 6, 1814, King Fredrik VI capitulated by breaking with Napoleon, joining the opposition and offering Norway to his Swedish opponents.
Even though Norwegian independence was to hang in the air for some time, what happened in 1814 was that the Norwegian state's rights had taken an enormous leap forward that few would have dreamed of one year earlier.

 1814 : Niagara Campaign Overview - Final Actions

Shortly after midnight on 3 July 1814, the leading units of the American invasion army, commanded by Brigadier General Winfield Scott embarked at Black Rock, crossed the Niagara River, and landed on the Canadian side exactly where they had planned and without casualties.
No resistance was encountered at Fort Erie, as its works were open and undefensible on the land side and the garrison numbered no more than 137, whose commander Major Thomas Buck, rather than sacrificing his men, surrendered the garrison as prisoners of war.

The latter means that the 1814 is using its internal clock and ignoring any incoming signals on the digital input socket, and is M Audio's answer to the intermittent clicks that a few users experienced with the 410 in this situation.
Because the 1814 has balanced outputs, I could use balanced cables to connect it to my mixing desk, so there were no ground-loop problems — as a check I tried replacing them with unbalanced ones, and I could immediately hear mouse and graphics card noises in the background, just as I could with the FW410.
The Firewire 1814 is a versatile interface that should find many applications, including live recording of small bands, and as the nerve centre of a small studio where you need to interface a wide variety of digital gear.

The 1814, like its name suggests, is capable of 18 input and 14 output channels, using a combination of analog and digital connections.
Measuring slightly larger than a VHS cassette, the 1814 is designed for portability, and its sturdy build suggests that it can withstand a long life of use out in the elements — whatever those might be.
The 1814 does ship with a routing application that allows you to set up the unit based on your specific needs — for example, with this, you can specify what signal goes to headphone source A or headphone source B and so forth.

 1814 Warren TN Militia-Cpt. Tait
The militia records of 1814 are particularly valuable to researchers because so many of these men were under 20 years of age -- too young to have appeared on the 1812 Warren County tax lists, and often gone by 1820.
Although General Andrew Jackson's report of the Battle of Horseshoe Bend (27 March 1814) mentions that Copeland's regiment was held in reserve during this engagement, part of the regiment saw action based on the fact that muster rolls show casualties from this battle in the companies of Captains Moses Thompson and Allen Wilkinson.
Although he dealt vigorously with the mutineers, on one occasion putting a gun across the back of a horse and promising to shoot the first soldier who took another step toward home, Jackson finally had to release his troops and wait for another army to be recruitied.

 audioMIDI.com : M-Audio Firewire 1814 Review by Douglas Edge
Setting up the FireWire 1814 is easy enough… just make sure you follow the directions and do not connect/power up the unit until you install the driver to help insure that your computer properly recognizes the FireWire 1814.
Overall, the FireWire 1814 is built well –the unit is very sturdy and has a hefty weight, the only slight grudge is that the machined holes for the toggle switches –like pad, mic/line selector, etc, were not well centered on my demo unit.
In short, the FireWire 1814 worked like a charm on my system, allowing me to record without having to direct monitor the input source so I could hear the processed track with reverb, delay, etc., as I was recording it.

Scott helped to create a new national identity for Scotland through his poems and novels, and was a major figure in the international Romantic movement.
This is his manuscript for Waverley, his first novel and arguably the first ever historical novel when it was published in 1814.
Waverley deals with themes that greatly interested and affected Scott's contemporaries and which continue to fascinate today: the lost cause of Jacobitism, the romance of the '45 Rebellion, and the depiction of societies (both Highland and Lowland) in the course of profound change.
