A study of Oswego, its people and the river on which passed most of the naval stores bound for Sackets Harbor during the years around the War of 1812. Fort Ontario, guarding the Oswego River and the Harbor against British raids, symbolized the last friendly contact with home before American seamen sailed onto Lake Ontario to face the enemy. Rich account of the major naval and governmental figures of the time.
