Comments

Laura Secord was a Canadian heroine during the War of 1812 between the United States of America and the British Empire (supported by Indigenous American peoples). In 1813, she is credited with having walked 32 km out of American territory to warn British forces of an impending attack. Ultimately, the Americans were ambushed by the British and Indigenous forces.
