War of 1812 Engravings: Fort George, Fort Niagara and Winfield Scott at Queenston


These are three engravings, most likely from a newspaper or other late 19th century literature, originally, and placed onto tiles. It is believed that they were taken from Winfield Scott's autobiography. They have been mounted onto a wooden plaque by the donor with the name of Ambrose Vannater(donor’s ancestor) inscribed on it. The images are: Scott’s speech on a log at the Battle of Queenston Heights, Fort Niagara, and Scott tearing down the British flag after the capture of Fort George and Fort Niagara.
