Sackets Harbor Battlefield

Sackets Harbor Battlefield

The Sackets Harbor Battlefield was the site of two battles during the War of 1812.

Today the Sackets Harbor Battlefield and its role in the War of 1812 is interpreted to the public by 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 War of 1812 period military clothing reenact the camp life of the common soldier.
