Local History Lecture

Lew Buttery will present the story of the Battle of Lundy's Lane, as part of the commemoration of the 200th Anniversary of the War of 1812. 

Image of battle from War of 1812In 1814 the US army tried once again to “invade” Canada and on July 25 they met the British army at Lundy’s Lane in Niagara Falls, Ontario where a major battle was fought long into the night. The presentation, by BRI-NK founder Lewis Buttery, will discuss the importance of this battle and whether it was a victory for the US or the British.  John Belden Buttery was a pvt in the US 23rd Infantry and his son John Milton Buttery was a member of one of the founding families of the Niagara Frontier.
