1814 - Seventy British seamen and marines in a small flotilla leave Point Abino and travel eastward and then north into the Niagara River. Under the leadership of Capt. Alexander Dobbs, their intent was to head off three American ships of war. Around midnight, claiming to carry provisions, these boats were allowed close enough to the American schooners the Somers and the Ohio to board and capture them.
