The Admonition of Capt. David Perry (1819) 
The An Account of the Battle of Plattsburgh and Lake Champlain, 1814.
The date was 11 September 1814 -- an "ever-memorable" day of victory and great rejoicing for Americans,
a day never to be forgotten when "the Lord stood by us and put our enemies to flight in a marvellous manner." *
