For many years, Coteau-du-Lac was an important logistical link between Upper and Lower Canada and was the site of North America's first lock canal Early in the war, troops were sent to garrison the decaying 18 th century blockhouse at this post on the St.
Lawrence River, Britain's critical transshipment route. Upon recommendations of Royal Engineer Ralph Bruyeres, an ambitious construction program began in order to strengthen defences including a large octagonal wooden blockhouse and earthworks on either side of the canal.
Although it was never attacked, Coteau-du-Lac was in a state of heightened alert when Major General James Wilkinson began his November campaign down the St. Lawrence to attack Montreal. Gunboats constructed at Ile aux NoixLower Canada naval yard. Named after William Caldwell, their commander and a merchant with ties to the Indian Department, this militia unit is raised to fight alongside British First Nations allies.
Both troops will be amalgamated on 25 September Engagement on the Rappahannock River, Virginia. Royal Navy boats capture four American vessels after a boarding action. An amphibious attack on Kingston being impractical as its harbour was blocked by ice, American Brigadier General Zebulon Pike turned his attention toward York and the warship under construction there.
Incapable of preventing the landing, Major-General Sir Roger Hale Sheaffe ordered the sloop Sir Isaac Brock burned and Fort York 's powder magazine detonated, which caused several hundred American casualties including Pike who was fatally wounded. Sheaffe's British regulars then retreated to Kingston leaving the militia to negotiate the terms of surrender.
Occupying the town just over a week, the Americans destroyed private and public property. Although the attack left their army weakened, the Americans did succeed in disrupting British plans since supplies destined for their squadron on Lake Erie were lost during the raid. They will serve in both Lower and Upper Canada. Raid on Frenchtown, Maryland. British sailors and Royal Marines attack and disperse Maryland Militia.
Supplies are taken from the town. Two companies of the 99th Regiment are stationed in Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia to defend this part of the Bay of Fundy coast from privateers, and to be available for crossing over to Saint John, New Brunswick, should it come under attack.
They will take part in the Battle of Beaver Dams in June Procter also realized that the Americans posed a military threat to his base at AmherstburgUpper Canada.
After reinforcements from Niagara arrived Procter laid siege to Fort Meigs bombarding it with gunboats and with batteries erected on both sides of the river. On 5 May the allies defeated a substantial American relief force as well as a sortie by the fort's defenders but, with dwindling supplies and lacking adequate siege artillery, Procter was forced to end the operation. With the defeat Procter lost the respect of Tecumseh and other First Nations leaders.
In response, the British government appointed distinguished veteran Sir James Lucas Yeo commodore and commander of naval forces on Canada's lakes.
Yeo was responsible first and foremost with the defence of the Canadian provinces but it was also hoped that he would regain dominance of Lakes Champlain and Ontario. Yeo left England in March on the Woolwich accompanied by over officers and seamen, many of whom had just served in the Baltic Sea. As well, Yeo brought ordnance and supplies needed for the lakes naval establishments.
Andrews have erected three batteries, each containing a blockhouse. Prior to Commodore Yeo's arrival, the British naval establishment on the lakes had been administered by the Provincial Marine, essentially a transport service with few experienced officers and deficiencies in crew.
The organization, part of the Quartermaster General's Department of the army, was incapable of opposing the increasing strength of the U. Navy commanded by Commodore Isaac Chauncey. Yeo along with Royal Navy officers and seamen were therefore sent from England in March to supersede the Marine in defence of the colony.
Shortly after his arrival, Yeo engaged the Americans at Sackets Harbor. New Brunswick-based privateers were rare because they threatened to interfere with the licensed trade. Of the few that did put to sea, the ton sloop Dart was the most successful. Originally an American-owned sloop, she was captured by the Royal Navy in early and sold at auction in Halifax to a group of Saint John, New Brunswick investors.
Her privateering career, which began on 22 May under the command of Captain John Harris of Clementsport, Nova Scotia, was almost stillborn, for on the 28th she was fired upon by HMS Rattlerwhose captain mistook her for an enemy vessel in the heavy fog. She took 10 prizes before being captured by the United States revenue cutter Vigilant off the Rhode Island coast on 4 October On 25 May, U.
Outnumbered two to one, the British, Canadians and First Nations were overwhelmed by the cannon fire from the U. British Brigadier-General John Vincent abandoned positions on the Niagara Peninsula and ordered a retreat to Burlington Heights after suffering heavy losses. This retreat thwarted the American plans to cut off and destroy the British between Queenston and Niagara.

Five U. Lake Erie fleet. They would fight in the Battle of Lake Erie in the fall. Vincent disbanded the Niagara militia who were left to face the victorious Americans alone. From Burlington Heights the British could send reinforcements and vital supplies to their western posts.
The loss of this important position would mean the abandonment of western Upper Canada, and end the alliance with the First Nations associated with Shawnee Chief Tecumseh. Commodore Sir James Lucas Yeo's squadron ferried about troops but, becalmed off the American coast on the 28 May, failed to surprise their foe.
The town's garrison reinforced during the delay, assaults the following morning failed when the British came under heavy fire. Panicking, American officers ordered naval storehouses burned along with a warship under construction, the General Pikeextinguished once the British withdrew. Chauncey recalled the fleet to Sackets and did not venture from the port until General Pike was completed in late-July. Temporarily uncontested, Yeo engaged in several successful amphibious operations. Brigadier General Peter Porter wrote that "the whole army lies panic struck - shut up and whipped.
The farmer's fields and woodlands echoed with gunfire as groups of regulars, militia and First Nations fought for control. Terrible sanitation and living conditions led to sicknesses and deaths, and a decline in morale in the U.
