He was engaged in the battle of Bladensburg (q. v.)in August, and led the troops that entered Washington, D. C., and destroyed the public buildings there. He was with General Ross in the expedition against Baltimore in September, and was near that general when he fell. Evans was also with Pakenham in the attempt to capture New Orleans. He was wounded in the battle that occurred below that city. Returning to Europe, he served under Wellington.
