1. Millens Bay Patriots
Abner Hubbard went over to capture the fort on Carlton Island when he heard of the war just starting. He must have come through Sackets Harbor and was upset because he was a soldier of the Revolution didn't like the British attacking us again. He got a few of the neighbors together went over and attacked the fort and took a few prisoners. They were the first prisoners taken in the War of 1812 in the first action in the war, but it wasn’t military, it was just the people that lived in the Millens Bay area.
