During a four-day period in November, 1838 British troops and local militia defeated an invasion force of 300 American " Hunters " and Canadian rebels. The Battle of the Windmill victory prevented the invasion force from capturing Fort Wellington, Ontario, and cutting the St. Lawrence communications link, which would have left Upper Canada open to invasion.
You narration is news to me. I was a history major in my first two years of college, and this was entirely unknown to me. Of course at that time we were fundamentally taught the U.S. was never the agressor and never lost a war. Times change. Iraq being a good example.
Lovely photographic of a 'replica' historical period infantry squad. Loved the fine color and sharp details. Context and setting is well captured, too. Thank you.
