|Post subject:||French Mills|
That first battle on your T-shirt was for real even though you won't find it on a modern day map. French Mills was the target of the first raid into New York by the Glens in Nov of 1812. It's been renamed Fort Covington - in honour of the American officer who was killed at Crysler's Farm in 1813. To find it travel south-east from Cornwall, through the Akwasane Res and it's the first little town you'll come to. A historical marker is on the south side of the road where it crosses the Salmon River. No casualties for the Glens in a very successful raid by the British.

Glad you reminded me,.I started working on the French Mills story for the web's home page about 6 months ago and never returned to it. I'll finish it off tonight and then send it to you and Bill for approval.

Found some more information on the city of Fort Covington, New York on Wikipedia.
Also, some local history here.
