Battle of Plattsburgh Committee Co-Chairs Bid Farewell after 200th

The two co-chairs of the Battle of Plattsburgh Committee, Kit Booth and Greg Vancour say they’ve decided to call it quits after the Bicentennial Commemoration. Both Co-Chairs will be stepping down following the completion of this year’s event which is turning out to be much larger than years past. At a press conference Thursday, the two say their budget has doubled, and there could be as many as 200 re-enacters plus several special events and ceremonies commemorating the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Plattsburgh..
