The ratification of the Treaty of Ghent marked the end of the War of 1812 between the United States and England on February 18, 1815. In celebration of this event, the War of 1812 Museum, operated by the Battle of Plattsburgh Association, will hold its annual Treaty of Ghent Party. It will be held at the VFW Post 125 located at 116 Boynton Ave in Plattsburgh on Saturday, February 28th, 7pm to 10pm.
Guests will enjoy delicious hors d’oeuvres, cash bar, door prizes, a silent auction, and live entertainment. This auction includes items donated by local businesses, supporters and artisans. All proceeds from the auction help support the Battle of Plattsburgh Association and the programs it provides to the public. To highlight the celebration, period dress is encouraged, but not required.
Songwriter and artist Thomas Ventiquattro II has once again donated his services to entertain guests with classic folk songs, easy listening, and his signature recording “Dear Lucy”, a ballad that tells a story related to the Battle of Plattsburgh.
Tickets to this exciting event are $12 per person and are available at the War of 1812 Museum on 31 Washington Road in Plattsburgh on the Old Base. Or feel free to buy your tickets at the door at the night of the event at VFW Post 125.
