In the annals of human history, there have been very few battles fought which decide, not only the outcome of wars, but the fate of nations for generations to come. The battle fought at the tiny Village of Plattsburgh, New York, was such a contest. The land and naval Battle at Plattsburgh decided who would control all of North America, and whether or not the Republic of the United States of America would live or die. Would the concepts of the liberty and the equality of man survive, or be dashed to bits after only twenty-four years of life? The very existence of the American Nation hung in the balance on Sunday morning, September 11th, 1814. The defeat of Napoleon, released tens of thousands of seasoned British Troops into the American war theater. Now off the planning table, invasion of the United States of America became a reality. The northern mission of Britain's three pronged plan, to divide and conquer America, was by invasion from Canada at the upper end of Lake Champlain. The British Army in massive strength, some 15,000 strong, crossed the US border on the 1st. of September, 1814, and headed straight for New York City via Albany. The only obstacle in their path was the tiny Village of Plattsburgh, N.Y., located on the upper western shore of Lake Champlain. The village was defended by untested regulars, and local militias made up farmers, tradesmen, young boys and old men, with a total strength of 4500. Lake Champlain was defended by a 31 year old Naval Lieutenant, who was forced to build his own ships, and train his own sailors, because there was no US Naval presences on Lake Champlain, prior to his arrival in the area. This small force was all that stood against the army that had defeated Napoleon, and the naval veterans who had destroyed the French at Trafalgar. What you are about to read is the greatest adventure story in American History. The incredible, almost unbelievable story of how a 32 year old Army Engineering Officer with 4500 men, and a 31 year old Navy Lieutenant with a pine-sap fleet, and even greener sailors, defeated the grandest army since Imperial Rome, and saved a nation. The story that can only be described as "THE MIRACLE AT PLATTSBURGH."
