Lightest wear to the book, rear cover rubbed. 56 pages, softcover, illustrations, maps, portraits ; 22 cm. A study of an important but little known struggle between the United State and Britain carried out on Lake Champlain during the War of 1812. British and American forces faced each other in the Battle of Lake Champlain, also known as the Battle of Plattsburgh, fought on September 11, 1814. This ended the final British invasion of the northern states during the War of 1812. It was fought just prior to the signing of the Treaty of Ghent, and the American victory denied the British any leverage to demand exclusive control over the Great Lakes or territorial gains against the New England states.
