Battle in War of 1812, Oct. 26, 1813. The stream from
which the battle took its name, rises in Franklin County, New York, and
falls into the St. Lawrence a few miles above Caughnawaga. The scene of
the battle was about six miles above the confluence of the English with
Chateauguay River. Hampton was in command of the Americans, and De
Salaberry commanded the Canadian troops, with Colonel Macdonell in
charge of the reserves. Although the former had an overwhelmingly
superior force, the result of the battle was in favour of the Canadians;
and the contemplated attack on Montreal was abandoned. The battle was
won by French-Canadian militia under a French-Canadian commander. See
also War of 1812; Salaberry. =Bib.=: Lucas, Canadian War of 1812;
