Brock’s Monument is a National Historic Site to visit in commemoration of Canada 150.

The Queenston Heights Battlefield was the site where a respectable commander of British Forces of Upper Canada, Major General Sir Isaac Brock lost his life while repelling the invading American army in the battle of 1812. He died on the slopes on October 13, 1812. The monument is 56 metres (184 feet) high.

The monument has a dedication to the “colored soldiers” who fought in the battle.

After the death of Major General Brock, “Major General Hale Sheaffe with his force of British regulars, militia and Indians from Fort George strengthened by reinforcements from Chippawa, took the hill from west flank, capturing 958 prisoners.”

The monument is near the Queenston-Lewiston border crossing of Canada and America.
