Queenston Ontario - Isaac Brock 1769-1812 dies in battle while storming the Queenston Heights to dislodge Stephen Van Rensselaer and his invading army of 1,200 US troops and militia; Roger Sheaffe 1763-1851 takes command after Brock's death. Americans lose 90 dead, 100 wounded, over 850 prisoners. Ironically, Brock was awarded a knighthood in England three days before his death; a monument to him stands at Queenston Heights.
