A well done, local summation of the historic battle during the Fenian Raids of 1866. I learned more about Canadian history and seeing the site made things that I have read seem more real.

Interesting visit after we had been into the Museum. You need to use your imagination here, but it's worth a visit.

This monument is located directly on Garrison Rd. (Ont. 3) about 7 miles west of Ft. Erie. For those interested in Canadian, Irish and U.S. history it is worth the visit. A good map of the battle posted on site would add greatly to interpretation.
