November 21, 1812 – in Fort Niagra, New York (Battle of Fort Niagra) – As soon as the temporary armistice had ended, Maj. Gen. Sir Roger Sheaffe ordered a bombardment of fort Niagra from his base at Fort George. He had hoped to distract the American commanders from the southern end of the Niagra River, where he believed lay the greastest danger to Canada. The artillery cannonade he had ordered evoked the Anmericans to respond with their own bombardment on Fort George. An artillery duel went on through November 21. When the duel was over, there were 6 killed and a few men wounded. There was some property damage but no important objectives had been achieved by Sheaffe.
