The War of 1812 . . . Year Three

Dear gentle reader,
Well, the Fife clan has just returned from another epic week and a half trip pertaining to the War of 1812. Last year we traveled to War of 1812 sites in New York, and Ontario, Canada.  The year before that, we visited sites in Indiana, Ohio, and Michigan.  And it is our plan to have one more War of 1812 trip next January, which will coincide with the 200th anniversary of the Battle of New Orleans (along the way we plan to visit several sites pertaining to the auxiliary Creek War).  However, for this year, we journeyed back to Canada (mostly Quebec, but we also returned to a bit of Ontario), and we traveled to the Lake Champlain area of New York. As always, it was a non-stop action packed trip that will take several entries to cover. Hopefully, you all will enjoy following our adventures, and maybe find something of interest.
