In War of 1812. FitzGibbon commanded a
detachment of the 49th Regiment, with several hundred Indians.
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
Secord, advanced with his men of the 49th and demanded the surrender of
the Americans, who, believing themselves surrounded by a superior force,
capitulated. The engagement took place June 24, 1813. See also War of
1812. =Bib.=: Lucas, Canadian War of 1812; Hannay, War of 1812:
