Les résidents, craignant le conflit entre la fin à Plattsburgh, NY se traduirait par un bombardement britannique de Burlington, avait quitté la ville ou se cache pendant la nuit. Les habitants restants se sont réunis à l’église "dans les sièges difficiles avec attention apathique." Plus tard, la petite foule blotti au collège d’attente pour mot du haut du clocher où plusieurs hommes ont suivi la bataille avec un vieux verre d’espionnage. Ils ont vu un navire vaincu remorqué à Plattsburgh, mais leur objectif n’était pas assez puissant pour déterminer le pavillon du navire. Pendant cinq heures, ils attendaient avec impatience des nouvelles de la bataille.
