Description
Full Text

" The armed brig GENERAL HUNTER, having arrived from Amherstburg, was anchored off Fort Erie to protect that flank of the line. A chain of beacons extending from Lake to lake and to high land in the township of Pelham was established with iron baskets mounted on tall poles, to give timely warning of an attack. The usual crossing places below the Fort Erie Rapids, and at the head and foot of Grand Island were closely watched.
