The battle of Plattsburgh on September 11, 1814, was a decisive American victory which kept the the British Army in Canada from pouring south and overrunning the nation. Historian and retired U.S. Army Colonel David Fitz-Enz explores what might have happened if the Duke of Wellington, had been in command of the forces massed on the northern border preparing to retake the former colonies. In response, President James Madison orders Andrew Jacksonto command the forces which would keep the British at bay. The resulting conflict, taking advantage of the curious political environment between the Napoleanic Wars, is an intriguing work of alternate history.
