Title Battlefront Niagara 1812 - bringing history to life
Resource Type  Interactive Resource
Description  In the pre-dawn hours of October 13, 1812, hundreds of American militia and regular soldiers assembled on the banks of the Niagara River, intent to cross into Canada and wrest the village of Queenston from the grips of British control. Two years later the score was still not settled, and battle once again raged on the Niagara Peninsula - at Chippawa and later Lundy's Lane, the bloodiest skirmish ever fought on Canadian soil and one of the most important in Canadian history. Take students inside each of these conflicts, placing them in control of the destinies either of two armies with a long history of contempt. Designed specifically for Ontario Grade 7 students, Battlefront is a turn-based strategy computer game that allows its players to command the British and Canadian forces during this seminal phase in Canadian history.

Title Fort George National historic Site of Canada
Resource Type  Interactive Resource
Description  During the War of 1812, Fort George served as the headquarters for the Centre Division of the British Army. These forces included British regulars, local militia, aboriginal warriors, and Runchey’s corps of freed slaves. Major General Sir Isaac Brock, “the saviour of Upper Canada” served here until his death at the Battle of Queenston Heights in October, 1812. Brock and his aide-de-camp John Macdonell were initially buried within the fort. Fort George was destroyed by American artillery fire and captured during the Battle of Fort George in May 1813. The U.S. forces used the fort as a base to invade the rest of Upper Canada, however, they were repulsed at the Battles of Stoney Creek and Beaver Dams. After a seven month occupation, the fort was retaken in December and remained in British hands for the remainder of the war. After the war, the fort was partially rebuilt, and by the 1820’s it was falling into ruins. It was finally abandoned in favour of a more strategic installation at Fort Mississauga and a more protected one at Butler’s Barracks.
