Battle of the Châteauguay National Historic Site: Parks Canada

“On October 26, 1813, the Canadian troops under the command of Charles-Michel de Salaberry won an important victory over the invading American forces led by General Wade Hampton.

The scene of this battle is located on the shores of the Châteauguay River, 50 km southwest of Montréal, near the U.S.-Canada border.

Battle of the Châteauguay National Historic Site commemorates this feat of arms and the role played by the different combatants in defending Canada.”
