Book-on-CD Edition

The Battle of Lundy's Lane was one of the most famous engagements of the War of 1812.
    In early July 1814 an American invasion force crossed the Niagara River and captured Fort Erie, then advanced north. On 25 July 1814 British forces took up a defensive position at Lundy’s Lane, a hill within hearing distance of the mighty Niagara Falls. American forces encountered the British around 7:15 p.m. that night, eventually driving them from their position. The battle was fierce and fought mostly in the dark, with some troops fighting hand-to-hand or with bayonets. After a long night of bloodshed the exhausted American forces retreated, and the British reclaimed the battlefield the next morning. The battle was the bloodiest of the war so far, with 255 killed and over 1,400 wounded or missing. Source: Historica
The Lundy's Lane Historical Society was granted $2000.00 by federal government of Canada to organize and carry out a celebration of the centenary of the battle in the summer of 1914. This book was created by te Society to provide background information and to formally record the event.

The Committee that was appointed by the Lundy's Lane Historical Society to compile and publish this book included every available item of importance or interest relating to the Centenary Commemoration that was held on July 25 1914. The various phases of the function were classified and arranged in separate parts, to present the subject in a more connected form.
