I am writing to voice my support for the Lundy’s lane project. I am a US citizen and decedent of a wounded veteran of Lundy’s Lane. Issac Leonard (1790-1871) is my great grandmother’, great-grand father and is buried a few miles from my home near Toledo, Oh . As a member of the US 22nd Infantry, (under Col, Hugh Brady) he fought in the Battle of Chippewa and was struck in the hand at Lundy’s Lane. I have a photo of Issac taken shortly before his death showing his crippled hand.
I am head of a US based Living history group called the 1st Regt. Volunteers. Please let me know if I can support your worthy cause. Kind regards, Craig V. Fisher, Vice President of the General Society of the War of 1812 in Ohio
Your ancestor and his fellow soldiers on the Niagara Campaign faced incredible hardships and dangers – everything from traveling long distances by foot, to the ever-present threat of disease, to the unspeakable horrors of that War.
Thank you very much for your offer of support! We would be delighted to have you join the Friends of the Lundy’s Lane Battlefield.
