Niagara-on-the-Lake in Niagara Region, Ontario — Central Canada
Le Fort Mississauga
Cette tour et ces parapets sont les derniers vestiges des casernes, de la salle de garde et de la prison du fort Mississauga. Érigé entre 1814 et 1816 en remplacement du fort George pour faire face au fort américain Niagara, le fort abrita une garnison jusqu'en 1826. Il fut réparé et réarmé après la Rébellion de 1837, puis entretenu jusqu'en 1854, à cause des querelles de frontières avec les Américains. Des troupes y séjournèrent pendant la guerre de Sécession et l'invasion des Féniens en 1866; mais en 1870 toute activité militarie y avait pris fin.
