    Were those removed or painted over during the war?

    I'll have a question shortly.

    What I don't want to see is the Bills winning a Super Bowl. As long as I'm alive that doesn't happen.

    The answer is the Battle of Big Sandy, June 1814, on Lake Ontario halfway between Osewgo & the US Naval base at Sacket's Harbor. An American militia force ambushed and force of about 800 British Royal Navy, Marines & First nation allies who rowed into Big Sandy Creek in order to intercept a supply column carrying naval stores to the shipyard at Sacket's Harbor. The British were ambushed in their boats and never got ashore. After their retreat and the area secure, the supply column was brought forward. One item carried was a 600 foot cable which was to be used on new vessels at Sacket's.

    The 5 ton cable was carried by approx. 150 men.

    I just realized I scrolled past your hint and gave the name of a battle that took place in the Revolutionary War, not the War of 1812. I must've been distracted with something else at that moment.

    This line caught my attention:

    After my marriage I settled down as all farmers’ wives did at that time to a life of drudgery. I sometimes had some higher aspiration than making butter and cheese

    I wonder what she would think of today and what she would aspire to in her life given the changing times and mores
