Battle of Forty Mile Creek Monument

The plaque reads ... Engagement at the Forty

Here at the Forty Mile Creek, on 8th June, 1813, American forces, retreating from the Battle of Stoney Creek, were bombarded by a British flotilla under Sir James Lucas Yeo. Indians and groups of the 4th and 5th Lincoln Militia joined in the attack and created such confusion in the enemy ranks that they abandoned this position and retreated to Fort George.
