Topics. This memorial is listed in this topic list: War of 1812.
Location. 42° 56.253′ N, 78° 51.305′ W. Marker is in Buffalo, New York, in Erie County. Memorial can be reached from Meadow Drive. Marker is located in Delaware Park. It is very difficult to find. I could not perfectly pinpoint the latitude/longitude by satilite map. Enter the park at the Jewett Street Entrance and onto the one-way park road (called Meadow Drive). Look on the right for locked Gate 8 for the Buffalo Zoo. This is the Gorilla gate. There is a ground-level marker titled Flint Hill at the gate. Align yourself perfectly facing the same direction as the face of the marker. Walk straight into the meadow and hopefully you'll find it. Touch for map. Marker is in this post office area: Buffalo NY 14214, United States of America. Touch for directions.
