Frenchman's Creek - Recon
I received the following sketch of the Canadian shore of the Niagara River in the area of Frenchman's Creek. The road follows the shore from Chippewa, Queenston and Ft George (to the north off the bottom of the picture) over the creek at the bridge (just visible) and then to Fort Erie to the south. The river flows towards the camera angle from south to north.
My orders are to burn the bridge over the creek and capture the redoubt. We'll see how this plays out.
