The souls of those fifteen men who died on the battlefield of Chateaugay were members of the Chateaugay Platoon, commanded by Lieutenant Preserved-Fish MacAdam.

 

On 26 October 1813, a British force consisting of 1,630 regulars, volunteers, militia and Mohawk warriors repelled a large American force of about 2,600 regulars who were attempting to invade Lower Canada and ultimately attack Montreal.

Full of soldiers.
