Niagara Falls in Niagara Region, Ontario — Central Canada (North America)
Around midnight, with both sides completely exhausted, the Americans withdrew to their camp at Chippawa. They left the British guns behind, allowing Drummond to reclaim them the following morning.
“At the Falls of the Niagara we met the enemy and had, I believe, one of the most desperately fought actions ever experienced in America . . . (the battle was) stubbornly contested on both sides.”
