The City of Plattsburgh
is rich in history and played a pivital role in the Revolutionary War of 1812
because of its stratigic location at the head of Lake Champlain. The Battle of
Plattsburgh occured on Sept 11, 1814 and involved over 15,000 British Troops and
a large Navy Fleet. Badly outnumbered, only 1500 Americian army troops under the
command of Brigadier Alexander MaComb and a small Americian fleet under the command
of Lieutanant Thomas Macdonough successfully defended Cumberland Bay and defeated
the British forces. Today the Battle of Plattsburgh is celebrated and reinacted
between September 7-15th in honor of these Americian heros.

The idea of behind rustic furniture was to create
interesting pieces using natural materials such as twigs and logs that would blend
into a decor and not stand out . Rustic furniture makers today follow the age
old tradition of using natural materials to create spectacular furniture and rustic
decor pieces. Rustic furniture usually has no set line or angles. Each piece is
individually crafted .
Once you have a log home with rustic elements you will
want to continue that element with the furniture
Finding beautiful log furniture, stairs and railings, and
other pieces that will complement
your beautiful log home is easier than you might think. Log furniture is naturally
beautiful. You can see all of the character and wood grain of the logs used in
every piece of wood furniture. Log furniture made with timbers, twigs and branches
brings nature right into your home or cabin. From custom crafted twig furniture,
stairs and railings to antler chandeliers, your unique rustic
look is just a few clicks away.
