We will have 4 full days of excitement. We will have reenactments, the famed beat retreat, the Israel Green Tavern, a parade, fireworks, musical performances, memorial celebrations, historical programs, and food vendors.
The Battle of Plattsburgh was a turning point in the northern battle during the War of 1812, and helped lead to the Treaty of Ghent, which ended the only war fought by our nation in the Continental U.S. Both our country and Canada would not exist as we know it today, if it was not for the efforts of the brave and over matched infantry and volunteers that came together to defend our nation against the mighty British forces. Each year in early September we hold a commemoration in honor of the individuals that fought in this Battle in 1814.
