The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Watertown Daily Times (Watertown, NY), November 21, 1883

Full Text

The old war ship "New Orleans" at Sacket's Harbor, which has been visited and looked upon with wonder by so many as a relic of the war of 1812, will soon be no more. The party who bought it at the late sale commenced Monday to tear it down. It is said that many of the timbers are perfectly solid and very valuable, being the best of pine. It would seem as though the village of Sacket's missed it in not buying and keeping it simply as a relic of our late war with Great Britain.
