Battle of the Windmill - Prescott Ontario


On the St. Lawrence River downstream from Prescott Canada but within sight of the town, the stone windmill that became the focus of the Battle of the Windmill in November 1838 still stands. Sixty feet in height with thick rubble stone walls, it was the focus of a battle that lasted for four days between the 600 British troops and 250 Americans.

After being holed up in the Windmill for four days and being attacked, the Americans surrendered.

Although now renovated and repaired, the Windmill still stands and is a national historic site of Canada.

For years, a photograph of this Windmill was on many of the calendars about Canada. It still is very photogenic in nature and on a late September afternoon, I took some time to photograph it in the afternoon light of an almost cloudless day.
