Battle of Sackets Harbor July 29-31, 2016
It isn't every day that you get to set up camp on an actual National Historic Battlefield site. Each year we are invited by Connie Barone to attend the Battle of Sackets Harbor in Sackets Harbor New York - just east of Watertown. This year included four 1812 gunboats and their crews!
