Who Owned The Property Of The Battle Of Caulk's Field?

Kent's Part In the War, 1812-1814, commemorated a War of 1812 battle, the Battle of Caulk's Field, that took place in Maryland.

"Caulk's field farm was in possession of Mr. Isaac Caulk at the time of the battle.  He had inherited the property.     It was part of a tract known as 'Arcadia,' which was granted as 1600 acres to Michael Miller, one of the first vestrymen of old St. Paul's Church, Kent County [Maryland]."

More information about the Arcadia tract:
This particular part of 'Arcadia' had belonged to Isaac Caulk's uncle, John Moore, and upon the death of Mr. Moore, in August, 1812, the property became Isaac Caulk's.
