By Norman Ansley

Author Norman Ansley describes in detail the vital role that Commodore Thomas Macdonough and Vergennes, Vermont played in the War of 1812. Historian Ray Bearse wrote, "In the yards of Vergennes new ships, of Vermont timber, were constructed in record time...and Vermonters appropriately played an important part in the land engagement that accompanied the naval victory." These ships, constructed at the base of the falls in Vergennes, VT, were launched in record time, and engaged the British at the Battle of Plattsburgh on September 11, 1814.
