Fort George:

Fort George National Historic Site is a historic military structure at Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, that was the scene of several battles during the War of 1812. The fort consists of earthworks and palisades, along with internal structures, including an officer's quarters, blockhouses to accommodate other ranks and their families, and a stone powder magazine, which is the only original building on the site. Opposite the fort, across the Niagara River, stands Fort Niagara in New York, which can be seen from Fort George's ramparts.

A Brief History of The Fort From 1812 to 1814, Niagara was a hotly contested battleground, invaded by armies of the United States. Through that bitter conflict, Fort George played a vital role. No visit to the town is complete without a tour of the venerable Fort George National Historic Site of Canada, where British soldiers, Canadian militiamen and Aboriginal peoples fought to ensure that Ontario was not annexed to the United States. Fort George has been restored to the War of 1812 period and contains buildings furnished to recreate the site as it would have been during war.
