Boerstler, with a party of 600 men, advanced from Fort George by way of
Queenston to surprise him, but was ambushed by a body of Indians.
FitzGibbon, who had been warned of the approach of Boerstler by Laura

the Americans, who, believing themselves surrounded by a superior force,
capitulated. The engagement took place June 24, 1813. See also War of
