Detroit River Heritage

This river not only forms the border between two great nations, but is also a vital transportation artery into the upper Great Lakes. Imagine the vessels that have travelled on it ? First National canoes, sailing vessels loaded with furs, British and American warships, steamers bringing holidayers to Boblo Island, and giant freighters filled with iron ore.

British war vessels used the Detroit River during the War of 1812. After the war, an agreement limited the size and armament of warships on the Great Lakes.

Patrimoine de la rivi?re D?troit

Non seulement la rivi?re constitue la fronti?re entre deux grandes nations, elle est aussi une voie de navigation essentielle vers les eaux sup?rieures des Grands Lacs. Imaginez toutes les embarcations qui l'on emprunt?e ? les canots des Premi?res nations, les navires ? voiles charg de fourrures, les navires de guerre britanniques et am?ricains, les vapeurs ? aubes transportant les vacanciers jusqu'? l'?le aux Bois Blancs et les ?normes navires de charge remplis de minerai de fer.

Les navires de guerre britanniques emprunt?rent la rivi?re D?troit lors de la Guerre de 1812. Apr la guerre, une entente limiterait la taille et i'armement des navires de guerre sur les Grands Lacs.
