During the War of 1812, there was some British military movement in and around the Chesapeake Bay area and in an attempt to prepare for any military actions that the British might take, there were a host of military camps set up in some of the counties close to the Chesapeake Bay and Philadelphia City. In the October 1814 Pennsylvania state elections, the members of the military camps native to Pennsylvania were allowed to vote. When the newspapers reported these returns they listed them under "camp" or "army" votes.
The Democratic Press (Philadelphia, PA) from October 18, 1814 lists Anthony Taylor with 2598 total votes, but this appears to be a printing error.
The military votes included under Bucks County were cast at the Bush Hill and Marcus-Hook camps. Pennsylvania Correspondent, and Farmers' Advertiser (Doylestown, PA). October 17, 1814. October 24, 1814.
