Fort Niagara was only 1200 metres from FortGeorge, well within artillery range. In May, 1813, combined artillery fire from Fort Niagara, its detached batteries, and American warships at the river's mouth completely destroyed Fort Georgeand forced the British to abandon it to theinvading Americans. Only the powder magazinesurvived. By the end of the war, the British had re-occupied Fort George and captured Fort Niagara.
