5.0 out of 5 stars
A fantastic read for a history buff & on my wish list for places to visit!, January 25, 2013
Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

This author from Watertown, has really done her homework on the History of Sackets Harbor, New York. This is the best researched and most well-written book on the history of a mid Atlantic state that I have had the pleasure to read. It is worthy of textbook material for high school and college students because the history lessons are rich, including highly detailed accounts of the Sackets Harbor regions and shipyards, and its national importance during the War of 1812. Lots of important and notable people are covered within the history accounts of this famous village, founded by Augustus Sackett over 200 years ago. The author brings the history up to date, with descriptions of the area sites, museums and shops that are tourist attractions today. With the beautiful lake views and railroad, I’m ready to take a trip to this historical place myself and I have placed it on my wish list of places to visit. What a great learning tool this book is, that gives new nuggets of info with each re-read of it — lots of information that can be studied and enjoyed. It’s a five-star hit for me!

General Updates

Busy days!

The last few days I have been busy reading and writing and researching information for some of my blogs I write besides this one. Been updating my allergy and adrenal fatigue blog and have come across some interesting information lately. So will be busy with writing some articles for a while.

I also, have all six of my books on facebook, each having their own page.

Just mailed several people about The History of Sackets Harbor, New York, to see if anyone in the village is interested in stocking the book and selling it. So we’ll what will come of that.

But for now, since it is after 1Am and I have a three year old to watch in the morning, I should get my butt in bed.

Night all and I’ll be back again soon.

Press Release – The History of Sackets Harbor, New York

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

 

Glenburn, Maine, March 27, 2012 – Have you ever visited the historic village of Sackets Harbor, NY, located off the eastern end of Lake Ontario? If you have, then know about the village’s rich historical background. If you haven’t, there is a world to explore in the village, not only in its present state, but in its history.

 

In her new book, The History of Sackets Harbor, New York, author Janis I. Monroe, formerly of Watertown, New York, talks about the various areas of the history of the village of Sackets Harbor. She begins with the founding of the village in 1801 by New York City lawyer Augustus Sackett. Further chapters explore the village’s role in the War of 1812, The Battle of Big Sandy, when railroads came to the villages, fires that broke out, and the forts of the village.

 

The book will enlighten readers to Sackets Harbor’s history and the people who helped to build the village. Photographs accompany the writing and take you deeper into the history. The book is available in both paperback and Kindle editions.

 

Ms. Monroe created this book when she found there was not a book written about the history of Sackets Harbor and wanted to show people the history of the village and the importance of its existence in War History and American History.

 

Her connection to the village came when she went to school there and spent time there with friends. She picked up pieces of history along the years and continued to become even more curious about the full history behind the village. Sackets Harbor, NY is one of Ms. Monroe’s favorite places to be when she visits her family back in her hometown, of Watertown, NY.

 

Ms. Monroe currently lives in Maine and has published several articles for the Yahoo Contributor Network and has four poetry books published, and one memoir, besides The History of Sackets Harbor, New York. She has been writing since 1999, and continues to pursue this career while helping other authors along the way, by offering to interview other authors, review their books, and offers some light editing on their manuscripts. Monroe’s current project is The Gluten Free Directory which she hopes to release sometime next year, at the latest.

 

Monroe is available for interviews via phone, Skype, email, snail mail, or instant messenger (Yahoo, Google Talk). To follow Monroe on her writing journey visit her blog at http://janismonroe.wordpress.com
