Flight of the Royal George

On Nov. 9th, 1812 the USS Oneida and six gunboats under the command of Commodore Isaac Chauncey lay in wait off the False Duck islands in hope of intercepting HMS Royal George. The 22-gun corvette was the largest war ship on the Lake and was commanded by Commodore Hugh Earle of the Provincial Marine.
