Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Both Roosevelt and Churchill recognized the importance of the land and naval battles of Plattsburgh. Many other, more famous, engagements were ruses meant to divert U.S. troops away from the prize Plattsburgh would afford: a clear pathway into New England. If not for the exemplary skills of two young military officers, Commodore Macdonough and General Macomb, and the force they commanded regular army and naval personnel, New York and Vermont Militia, Native Americans, Veteran Exempts and boys from the local school the war and the nation would have been lost. Using original source documents, author Keith Herkalo retells the battles at Plattsburgh the key battles of the War of 1812.
