Synopsis:

On Halloween 1780, near Fort Niagara, the worst shipwreck in the history of Lake Ontario occurred. The 22-gun brig-sloop Ontario, built at the Carleton Island shipyard near present-day Kingston to defend British North America against the revolutionary forces of George Washington, foundered in a violent storm. Legend of the Lake is the story of the building, launching, foundering, and recent discovery of Ontario in deep water, almost intact, with both masts in place. Features British Admiralty plans for the ship, with scale drawings by renowned maritime architectural draughtsman John W. McKay, full-color paintings of Ontario and her sister ships, Seneca and Limnade, by renowned marine artists Peter Rindlisbacher and Robert Averill, and 20 underwater video images of the wreck.

About the Author:

Arthur Britton Smith is a graduate of Royal Military College and Osgoode Hall Law School, who served as an artillery officer in World War II and received the Military Cross. His interest in local history led him to compile the anthology Kingston Oh! Kingston.
