WAR OF 1812 WITH RICHARD WINES
15, 1:00 – 3:00 pm
Hallockville historian Richard Wines, author of “Defense of the Eagle”
about the War of 1812 battle that took place in the northwest corner of Hallock
State Park, will lead a Walk and Talk about the engagement. The program will
start in the park’s visitor center with an illustrated talk about the
engagement in which local militia held off three British warships for three days.
Weather permitting, we will drive to the upper parking lot and walk about a
quarter mile to a clifftop location overlooking the battle site.
