War of 1812 Uniforms and Equipment
During the War of 1812-1814, the sons and daughters of the original settlers banded together to defend their homes against invasion. Most were members of the five Regiments of Lincoln Militia. They fought with Brock at Detroit and Queenston Heights. They saw action at Fort George, Fort Erie, Beaver Dams, Chippawa and Lundy's Lane. Many times they were fighting literally in their own back yards.

As peace came slowly to Niagara, the Regiment continued to serve the community. In 1837, rebellion was in the air and the Regiment was called upon to patrol the Short Hills for Mackenzie's rebels as well as to guard the border crossings.
