The New York theatre played an important role in the War of 1812. From Buffalo along Lake Ontario to Oswego and up the St Lawrence to Plattsburgh on Lake Champlain, the war waged across the Empire State. A new documentary from PBS affiliate WCNY-TV takes a look at preservation efforts for these historical sites across New York State.

"Since the 200th anniversary from the start of the conflict occurred in 2012, interest in the war has increased as well renewed attention to War of 1812 sites"

Called ‘Losing Ground: The Race to Preserve the War of 1812 Battlefields Across New York State,’ the film tracks several preservation efforts statewide.

Since the 200th anniversary from the start of the conflict occurred in 2012, interest in the war has increased as well renewed attention to War of 1812 sites like Fort Ontario in Oswego and Sackets Harbor.
