9/7 Battle of Plattsburgh Commemoration: The Battle of Culver Hill Memorial Ceremony

Location: Culver Hill Historical Park, State Rt. 22, 2 miles north of intersection of Rte. 374 in Beekmantown
Start Time: 11:00:00 AM - End Time: 12:30:00 PM On September 6, 1814, a large British army numbering in the thousands marched through Beekmantown on their way to occupy the Village of Plattsburgh. In an attempt to hinder that advance, a small American force consisting of regular army and militia, made a stand behind stonewalls on the rise of land known as Culver Hill. What ensued was a short but very intense skirmish that resulted in several dead and wounded, including American Corporal Stephen Partridge of the Essex County New York State Militia, and two British officers, Lt. Col. James Willington and Ensign John Chapman, of the Royal East Kent Regiment, Third Foot, also known as the Buffs. For more information visit the Battle of Plattsburgh Commemoration website.
