The Invasion of Canada
Forty years after the 1775 revolution against the British by their
American settlers, in 1812, the Americans invaded Canada again. This
invasion stemmed from old grievances that had not been settled
following the American Revolution. One of the first battles fought was at
Queenston Heights, near Niagara Falls. The British commander,
General Isaac Brock, defeated a much larger American force, though
he himself was killed.
This is the tunic Brock wore. If you look very closely, you can see the
hole from the bullet that struck him in the chest.
