On September 11, 1814, a small and ill-equipped American fleet took on His Majesty’s Royal Navy at Plattsburgh on a land-locked New England Lake.

It was the decisive battle in the War of 1812, with the states of Vermont, New York and New Hampshire at stake.

It was The Battle of Lake Champlain.

You can buy the full Battle of Lake Champlain comic online and at MICE in Boston, October 4 & 5.
