Le Fort Mississauga

This tower and earthwork are all that survive of the barracks, guardroom, and cells of Fort Mississauga. Built between 1814 and 1816 to replace Fort George as the counterpoise to the American Fort Niagara immediately opposite, it was garrisoned until 1826. Repaired and rearmed following the Rebellion of 1837, it continued to be maintained until 1854 in response to border disputes with the United States. It was manned during the tense years of the American Civil War and the Fenian scare of 1866, but by 1870 it was no longer considered of military value.

Cette tour et ces parapets sont les derniers vestiges des casernes, de la salle de garde et de la prison du fort Mississauga. ?rig? entre 1814 et 1816 en remplacement du fort George pour faire face au fort am?ricain Niagara, le fort abrita une garnison jusqu'en 1826. Il fut r?par? et r?arm? apr la R?bellion de 1837, puis entretenu jusqu'en 1854, ? cause des querelles de fronti?res avec les Am?ricains. Des troupes y s?journ?rent pendant la guerre de S?cession et l'invasion des F?niens en 1866; mais en 1870 toute activit? militarie y avait pris fin.
