Lundy's Lane Battle Monumet

This is the site of the bloodiest battle of the War of 1812 fought on July 25th 1814. Lieutenant General Gordon Drummond with about 2,800 men engaged an American army which had recently been victorious at Chippawa. The armies were evenly matched, and the six hour battle lasted until darkness and heavy losses put an end to the fighting. Each force had lost over 800 men. Although each claimed victory the Americans had failed to dislodge Drummond from his position. They withdrew the next day ending their offensive in Upper Canada.
