Fort Erie in Niagara Region, Ontario — Central Canada
Pour tenter de reprendre l'initiative perdue à Queenston, les Américains planifièrent une invasion générale pour le 28 novembre 1812. Avant l'aube, l'avant-garde traversa le Niagara pour rompre toute liaison entre Fort-Érié et Chippawa et faire taire les canons britanniques. Les assaillants ne purent détruire le pont du ruisseau Frenchman et les batteries conquises furent bientôt reprises par les renforts britanniques. Après un combat décousu, l'avant-garde regagna la rive américaine. L'attaque principale venait d'échouer. Pour les Américains, tout espoir de triomphe au Niagara, on 1812, s'était éteint.
