Battle of Crysler’s Farm
The Battle of Crysler’s Farm, also known as the Battle of Crysler’s Field, was fought on 11 November 1813, during the Anglo-American War of 1812 (the name Crysler’s Farm is sometimes used for the engagement, but Crysler is the proper spelling). A British and Canadian force won a victory over a US force which greatly outnumbered them. The US defeat prompted them to abandon the St. Lawrence Campaign, their major strategic effort in the autumn of 1813.
At the time when citizens did courageous acts to defend their land, country, communities, they may not have conscientiously known the impact they were having on future generations. Today, we can instantaneously see the results of our efforts. This through both today’s world-wide “24-hour” media and through the Internet’s “real-time” technologies.
We rush, rush, rush. Many decisions are made today without realizing the impact they will have on our future. Today’s society needs to continue on the path of “united” generosity – in kindness, service and actions! We all should reflect on our past – for without it, we would not be where we are today!
Our “History in Motion” action video series encourages viewers to go “Back in Time” and “Reflect on Our Past”!
