Press-Republican: ‘Let’s not let it die’

Press-Republican: ‘Let’s not let it die’. “The Battle of Plattsburgh, known locally as the real end to the War of 1812, has been commemorated in the Lake City since 1997, but administrative challenges late last year had made longtime volunteers question the ability of the decades-long tradition to go on. ‘There was about 14 of us who got together and thought, “Well, let’s not let it die,”‘ Tom Donahue said, adding that 1814 Commemoration Inc. had thus been born.” The group has launched a new Web site to commemorate the Battle of Plattsburgh.
