Battlefield House Museum

When you come to visit us at Battlefield House Museum in Stoney Creek, you will find living history. Experience life in the early nineteenth century, as our museum staff, dressed in period clothing, demonstrate the lifestyle of the Gage Family. Learn about the history of Battlefield House. This rural Upper Canadian home was originally built here in Saltfleet Township, around 1796.

It was here, on June 6, 1813, that the Battle of Stoney Creek took place during the War of 1812. Every year a Military Re-enactment of the Battle of Stoney Creek is held in June.

Strange Fatality

The Battle of Stoney Creek, 1813

Journalist and author James Elliott has compellingly reconstructed one of the least understood actions of the War of 1812. From the rise to brigadier of blacksmith John Chandler, to the Highland heroics of Alexander Fraser, Strange Fatality explores the dynamics of a night battle that stemmed the tide of invasion, cost two generals their freedom and unseated the highest-ranking soldier in the American army.
