Interesting article relating to British & American Military relationships and events which could have changed the results of the War of 1812.

An item which may be missing – the Fort was a Prisoner of War Camp for Germans during WWII. I recall to this day driving past in 1945 seeing a group but focused on one prisoner sitting at the wire looking out at me. There was at least one escapee – who made it all the way to the corner of Stone Rd and US 104 just outside Rochester N. Y.
