Sackets Harbor Battlefield

Horse Island

Located on the banks of Lake Ontario, few battlefields can rival the waterfront vistas of Sackets Harbor.  New York’s Sackets Harbor Battlefield State Historic Site protects the War of 1812 battlefield and educates the public about the site’s 19th Century role in defending the United States through  exhibits, outdoor signs, guided and self-guided tours, and a restored 1850's Navy Yard and Commandant's House. During the summer months, guides dressed in military clothing of 1813 reenact the camp life of the common soldier.
