Format: Paperback
Growingnup in Sackets Harbor, I thought I knew mostnof what there was to know about my tiny, tiny hometown. But after reading this book I discovered I barely knew anything of Sacket's rich history. Ms. Monroe does an excellent job of detailing the ships that were built in the tiny harbor to the great amount of skirmishes that happened here during 1812, to the great peoplenwho lived or even passed through the village, and even goes as far as details some of the most impressive buildings in the village. The book is defentially a must read for any local history buffs.

This author from Watertown, has really done her homework on the History of Sackets Harbor, New York. This is the best researched and most well-written book on the history of a mid Atlantic state that I have had the pleasure to read. It is worthy of textbook material for high school and college students because the history lessons are rich, including highly detailed accounts of the Sackets Harbor regions and shipyards, and its national importance during the War of 1812. Lots of important and notable people are covered within the history accounts of this famous village, founded by Augustus Sackett over 200 years ago. The author brings the history up to date, with descriptions of the area sites, museums and shops that are tourist attractions today. With the beautiful lake views and railroad, I'm ready to take a trip to this historical place myself and I have placed it on my wish list of places to visit. What a great learning tool this book is, that gives new nuggets of info with each re-read of it -- lots of information that can be studied and enjoyed. It's a five-star hit for me!
