dc.description.abstractContains a brief entry on an attack by the Americans (p. 127). It is written that “about 300 soldiers and sailors crossed the Niagara, took two batteries, spiked the cannon and returned. The success attending these partial invasions are so many proofs that, if well supported, a serious impression might be made on the enemy’s country. It is generally supposed that the reluctancy of the militia to cross the line, is to be attributed, that the intended invasion has not hitherto taken place, and that operations must, from the lateness of the season, be suspended…until spring, when it must be attempted by a very superior force, or not at all”.
