1. The Battle of Chippawa Marker
Inscription. Here, on 5 July 1814, an American army under Major-General Jacob Brown launched the last major invasion of Canada during the War of 1812. The Americans defeated a British and Canadian force commanded by Major-General Phineas Riall consisting of regulars, militia and Aboriginal warriors. During the engagement, about 200 men were killed and over 500 hundred wounded. After four months of heavy fighting, with major action at Lundy's Lane, Fort Erie and Cook's Mills, the invaders were forced back to the United States.

C'est ici que, le 5 juillet 1814, l'armée américaine dirigée par le major-général Jacob Brown lança sa derniére grande offensive en sol canadien lors de la guerre de 1812. Les forces britanniques et canadiennes, regroupant des soldats, des miliciens et des guerriers autochtones sous le commandement du major-général Phineas Riall, perdirent cette bataille qui se solda par quelque 200 morts et 500 blessés. Toutefois, quatre mois de luttes et de combats acharnés à Lundy's Lane, a Fort Érié et à Cook's Mills, repoussrènt les envahisseurs et forcèrent leur retraite vers les États-Unis.
