Another LCYC History Lesson: The Big Anchor
Ever wonder what the real deal is with that big anchor from the War of 1812 sitting on our lawn? With the MacDonough Race coming up in less than 2 weeks which, if you didn't already know, is timed to roughly coincide with the anniversary of the Battle of Plattsburgh on 11 September 1814, I thought it would be timely to share another document which our Historian Bern Collins recently dug out of the LCYC archives. This write up, from the late Colonel John Williams (LCYC Commodore 1968-69), describes what we know about the anchor, the involvement of one of our current BOG members and how it came to be in LCYC's possession.
