what source lists seven men under the category of "Militia of Upper Canada," as recipients of Military General Service Medals for service at either Crysler's Farm, or Chateauguay and what are their names please?
The 1st Grenville Regiment; The 2nd Grenville Regiment; and the 1st Leeds were among 6 different Militia Regiments of Upper Canada listed, what are the other 3 Regiments and where/what book does it mentions the farm please?.
