Origins of the Battle of Plattsburgh Veterans Exempt Flag
This flag dates to the War of 1812 and the Battle of Plattsburgh (a.k.a. Battle of Lake Champlain). Although their is scant proof it was ever flown during battle, the flag is attributed to the Veterans Exempt, a New York State militia group that was formed in July of 1812 and led by Captain Melvin Woolsey. The group was made up of Revolutionary War veterans who were otherwise exempt from military service due to their age, but who volunteered their service during the Battle of Plattsburgh nonetheless, and provided a valuable reserve in a time of crisis.
