The Friends of Crysler’s Farm Battlefield

You’re Among Friends

The Friends of Crysler’s Farm Battlefield Memorial is a group of volunteers dedicated to preserving the memory of the stirring victory of Joseph Wanton Morrison’s Anglo-Canadian army on November 11, 1813.

Their primary purpose is the preservation and expansion of the Battlefield Memorial Building at the base of the mound, which is topped with the granite spire commemorating the events of November 11, 1813.

The granite memorial was originally raised by the federal government in 1895 on the actual site of the battle but the flooding of much of South Dundas Township as a result of the construction of the St. Lawrence Seaway and the taming of the rapids between Morrisburg and Cornwall, caused it to be moved to its present site. It was re-dedicated in 1961 with the Battlefield Memorial Building, housing a magnificent mural of the peak action of the battle by Adam Sheriff Scott, was opened.

In recent years, the Friends were instrumental in revitalizing the displays in the Battle Memorial Building and sponsoring a military re-enactment weekend in the summer.

You can help the organization realize its goals by becoming a member of the Friends of Crysler’s Farm Battlefield Memorial.
