The Niagara River was extremely important from a strategic perspective. It was part of the St. Lawrence - Great Lakes system, one of the main transportation routes on either side of the border. Those who controlled the waterways would inevitably control their enemy. During the War of 1812, Fort George was the main British headquarters in the Niagara Region.
