The Fort at Sag Harbor
In the early morning hours of 11 July 1813, a contingent of British marines attempted a hostile occupation or the surrounding area. They were driven back by the cannon fire from this fort, American militia and the citizens or the village of Sag Harbor, never to return.
Therefore, on this day, the 200th anntversary of that battle, we dedicate this place to honor those who protected our beloved village.
