War of 1812 Bicentennial
Memorial to the Crown Forces

Dedication Ceremony

In August 2012, a groundbreaking ceremony took place at the Sackets Harbor Battlefield State Historic Site (NY) for a War of 1812 Bicentennial monument to honor approximately 50 members of the Crown Forces killed at the Second Battle of Sackets Harbor 29 May 1813, and buried in an unknown burial site on the battleground. The monument was finished and dedicated on August 3, 2013.

A comprehensive list of those buried at Sackets Harbor, including members of the Royal Artillery, 1st Royal Scots, 8th Foot, 100th Foot, 104th Foot, Royal Newfoundland Fencibles, Nova Scotia Fencibles, Glengarry Light Infantry Fencibles, Royal Navy, and Voltigeurs Canadiens is available for download: "Crown Forces Buried at Sackets Harbor" (PDF 224k).
