In May of 1813, combined artillery fire from Fort Niagara and detached batteries destroyed Fort George paving the way for invasion. On May 27th, a large American force defeated a much smaller number of British regulars, militia and First Nations warriors. This led to an American occupation of the area for the next seven months. Today, Fort George brings to life these troubled times and tells the stories of this pivotal part of Canadian history.
