" This was the battle which sparked my interest in the War of 1812. We visited the battlefield in 1985 and I have wanted to recreate this battle on the table top since. It has simple terrain, balanced equal forces and colorful uniform. British regulars, gray jackets Americans, volunteers in mixed dress and native Indians. You would have a difficult time finding a more perfect battle to fight in miniature…."

Nice. My favorite War of 1812 battle is Lundy's Lane. Reading about that in the Osprey Niagara 1814 book 10 years ago sparked my interest in the War of 1812.

I never visited Chippawa, but I have seen Lundy's Lane. Pretty much a cemetery in a middle of a city. Hard to imagine what it was like in 1814.

Been to both plus Fort Erie. Great visit and interesting battlefields.

If you don't have Don Graves' books on all three I highly recommend them.

You might want to get the booklets on the War of 1812 published by the Fort Niagara Association. I have some and they are excellent.

Actually there is small presentation across the road from the cemetery. But the site is disappointing due to the city's encroachment of the battlefield.
