19 Sep Detroit Day

August 16th 2012

200 years ago today Major General Isaac Brock forced the capitulation of General William Hull and the entire US Army of the Northwest at Detroit.  Brock had used a combination of intelligence and cunning to convince the US General that his force of fewer that 600 British Regulars was over twice that size, and that the great Shawnee Warrior Tecumseh would bear down on the fort with over 1,000 savage warriors the moment battle commenced.
