200th anniversary Battle of Cranberry Creek
The Battle of Cranberry Creek was fought between American and British forces near Alexandria Bay, NY on this date some 200 years ago. The Americans drove off a superior force and retained captured supplies. Over the weekend I did a presentation on the battle and the repatriation of the Americans who died in that battle. It was held at the memorial site on the Swan Hollow Road in Alexandria Bay. Back in 2005 we wrote a small booklet about the battle. It is still available through the Town of Alexandria Historical Society located at Cornwall Brothers Store in Alexandria Bay.
