Last night’s encampment at the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum ended in a war this afternoon between the British and American navy ships and we were caught in the crossfire.

It began with British ships rounding the point into our anchorage. Cannons were fired from the shore and then there was a slow paced melee.

But we were able to sail away, unscathed, and our flag was still there.
