Commemorating The Battle Of Plattsburgh

From the Battle of Plattsburgh Organization website:

The totally unexpected American victory thwarted the British plans to control Lake Champlain and led to the signing of the Treaty of Ghent which ended the War of 1812 on Christmas Eve, 1814.

A breakdown of the battle can be found here.  A chronological report here.
