La Batterie Vrooman

Manned by Captain Samuel Hatt's 5th Lincoln (Militia) Regiment and a small party of the Lincoln Militia Artillery under Lieutenant John Ball, and consisting of one 24-pounder cannon mounted within a crescent-shaped earthwork, this Battery was engaged in the Battle of Queenston Heights on the 13th of October, 1812. Commanding the Niagara river, its continuous fire harassed the Americans crossing from Lewiston, provided cover for the British when they were first repulsed from the heights, and supported later attempts to regain them.

Manoeuvr?e par le capitaine Samuel Hatt, du 5e R?giment Lincoln (milice) et un d?tachement de l'artillerie de milice Lincoln sous les ordres du lieutenant John Ball, ce canon de vingt-quatre livres ?tait mis en batterie en forme de demi-lune. Elle fut utilis?e ? la bataille de Queenston Heights le 13 octobre 1812. Assurant la ma?trise de la Niagara, son tir continu harcela les Am?ricaines qui traversaient la rivi?re ? Lewiston, couvrit les troupes britanniques repouss?es des hauteurs et appuya leurs tentatives ult?rieures pour les reprendre.
