Regarding Sheaffe's Path to Victory.
"Sir Roger Hale Sheaffe was born in 1763 in Boston, Massachusetts. He was a member of the British 5th Foot that came into Upper Canada in 1787. By 1802 Sheaffe was in command of part of the 49th Regiment stationed at Fort George. When the American force invaded at Queenston and General Brock was killed, it was Sheaffe who took command and eventually led the British forces to victory at Queenston Heights."
