The War of 1812 was a fundamental turning point in Canadas history: it profoundly influenced British North Americas (Canadas) sense of identity and united French- and English-speaking inhabitants, Aboriginal communities, farmers, soldiers, artisans, and others, in an effort to preserve their ways of life from American invasion.

From the struggle emerged exceptional accounts of some of Canadas proudest moments. These stories and the heroes that arose from them exemplified the extraordinary characteristics required to defend British North America, and have become important symbols and enduring narratives in the history and evolution of todays Canada.

The Battle of Queenston Heights would become iconic in the war to come, strengthening unity among the many groups occupying British North America, spawning shared stories and heroes, and becoming one of the first common threads in the histories of Canadas founding peoples.
