— The Invasion Trail marks points of interest on the path the British marched.

It's not such an easy hike for most, though.

“You'd have to be very industrious to walk it,” said Bates. The Invasion Trail stretches from Champlain to the Kent Delord House in Plattsburgh.

Also displayed at the ceremony was a painting by John Purdy, made to commemorate the occasion, will be displayed at the war of 1812 museum on the former Air Force base, behind the jets displayed near the Route 9 roundabout.

The Battle of Plattsburgh weekend returns Sept. 9 to 11, with events around the city. Learn more at www.battleofplattsburgh.org.
