Katie Greene '14, of Essex Junction, Vt., gave a presentation at the St. Lawrence County Historical Association's Annual Meeting on November 3. The meeting focused on the region's role in the War of 1812, and Greene's presentation was on "The Capitulation of the Village of Hamilton."

A history major, Greene participated in a seminar about the War of 1812 taught by Associate Professor of History Melissane Schrems. During the War of 1812, the present-day Village of Waddington was known as Hamilton. At that time the village, which was named after Alexander Hamilton, was part of the Town of Madrid. Greene spoke about why British forces came to Hamilton and what they took with them when they left.
