Stoney Creek Battlefield

I had this under the Ontario section but I thought this deserves to be seen by more people. Plus this is an important national event. So I decided to post this here so Canadians can check it out, especially if you’re like me and enjoy learning history.

So the Stoney Creek Battlefield is a National Historical Site. Basically summed up the Battle of Stoney Creek (June 5th of 1813) was the turning point of War of 1812. The Americans lost and stopped their further invasion of Canada. By the end of the Battle of Stoney Creek the Americans surrendered and went back to Niagara on the Lake, they also lost that battle too.

Great pics of the re-enactment! Much better than sitting through history class.
