- These are a few examples of steel bayonets from the War of 1812-1814. The largest bayonet’s base (most likely British) measures 10cm long, 2.5cm in diameter and the blade is 41.5cm long and 2.5 cm wide at the base tapering to a sword point. It was found at the corner of Spring St. and Dorchester Rd. in Niagara Falls while excavating. The smaller ones are believed to be American. These items are on display at the Battleground Hotel Museum.
