Title: Battle of Plattsburgh: Music of the War of 1812

Despite many early British victories, the Americans won the War of 1812 at the Battle of Plattsburgh September 11, 1814, a decisive victory which kept Northern New York and New England from becoming 'Columbia,' a planned Canadian Province. This CD tells the story of Commodore Macdonough's victory on Lake Champlain over the British ships, and General Macomb's victory, with 1500 militia men, facing 15,000 battle tested British troops. With 13 songs of the time and 7 sets of period music on hammered dulcimer. AASLH Award winner Stan Ransom plays hammered dulcimer, guitar, mandolin, banjo and autoharp to accompany his mellow baritone voice. This CD is a must for folk music and historical music buffs.
