Inscription. English:
Here, on the farm of John Crysler, was fought one of the decisive battles of the War of 1812. On 11 November 1813 Lieutenant-Colonel Joseph Morrison, with 800 British and Canadian regulars, militia and Indians, engaged an American force of 4,000 under Brigadier-General John Boyd. The open terrain was suited to the training of the well-drilled British regulars, who, after two hours of heavy fighting, routed the enemy. This victory ended a major American thrust at Montreal.

French:
Ici fut livrée l'une des batailles décisives de la guerre de 1812. Le lieutenant-colonel Joseph Morrison, à la tête de 800 hommes (réguliers britanniques et canadiens, miliciens et Indiens) livrait combat, le 11 novembre 1813, aux 4 000 hommes du brigadier-général américain John Boyd. Les réguliers britanniques, bien exercés au combat en rase compagne, mirent les Américains en fuite après deux heures de rude bataille. Cette victoire brisa la poussée importante de l'ennemi vers Montréal.
