The Battle of the Châteauguay

The Battle of Châteauguay, fought in 1813 to push back American troops invading Canada, is recounted in this dramatic short film by the hero of the battle, Lt-Col. Charles-Michel de Salaberry.

Recreated battle scenes illustrate de Salaberry's military strategy, while animation is used to relate the events leading up to this important battle (the French and American revolutions, the reign of Napoleon, the naval battles between the English and the Americans, and Yankee expansionist policies).

A lively history film, it provides an unusual look at the War of 1812.
