The Battle of Ogdensburgh, February 22, 1813, was a British victory. Although small in scale, the capture of Ogdensburgh, NY removed the village as an American threat to British supply lines for the remainder of the War of 1812. Lt. Col. “Red” George Macdonnell crossed the frozen river with 500 men and some light guns mounted on sleighs. The raid across the St. Lawrence River from Canada into the United States is now part of our shared heritage to be remembered in friendship. Be part of this once-in-a-lifetime event.
