Westward Invasion

iroquois point light house On the way home from getting groceries in "the Soo" we took the scenic route and stopped at the Point Iroquois Light House. A sign on the property reads: "This point of land is the historic battleground where the westward invasion by the Iroquois Indians was halted by the victorious Chippewa." The lighthouse was built in 1870 and operated until 1963 when an automatic light was erected in the channel.

From home, this light house is about 20 miles, as a crow flies, south-east across the bay. If it was operating I may be able to see it's light from my window right now. I can see the light from it's replacement instead.
