THE BATTLE OF SACKETS HARBOR
This is the view of Elizabethtown (today known as Brockville, Ontario) from the perspective of Morristown, New York. On July 31st, 1812, the first naval battle occurred here. Specifically, the USS Julia fought the HMS Earl of Moria in a lengthy battle. Oddly enough, neither side won or lost. In fact, they both retreated with little damage. By crossing the border into the USA from Prescott, you drive along Northern New York and the highway has many 1812 Remembrance rest area stops. This was one of them.
This war memorial is a typical scene in the United States; this one is in Morristown, New York.
