- A watercolour by an unknown artist of the Battle of Fort George, based on a line drawing that was in the
Philadelphia Portfolio in 1817. The drawing shows some details on the town, including many elements that
were later destroyed in December 1813 by the retreating American forces, such as the lighthouse and churches.
The drawing depicts the events of 27 May 1813 when US forces attacked the Town of Niagara and Fort George.
More can be read on this event in E.A. Cruikshank's "The Battle of Fort George".
