Title: The Papers of James Monroe, vol. 7, Selected Correspondence and Papers, April 1814 – February 1817
Editor: Daniel Preston (editor)

Editor: Heidi Stello (editorial assistant)
Abstract: Volume Seven of the Papers of James Monroe covers the period from April 1814 to February 1817, when Monroe served as secretary of state and for a time secretary of war in the administration of James Madison. The focus is the War of 1812. The volume documents Monroe’s continued advocacy of a vigorous prosecution of the war, the active measures that he took during the British attack on Washington, his steady supervision of the war effort during the closing months of the conflict, and his reorganization of the army and military academy for peacetime. It also documents his encouragement of the negotiations with Great Britain that resulted in the Treaty of Ghent, his work to normalize relations with European powers in the wake of the Napoleonic wars, and his role in the Anglo-American negotiations that produced the Rush-Bagot Treaty, which provided for disarmament of the Great Lakes. The political highlight of this volume is Monroe’s quiet campaign for the presidency.
