your recent work researching veterans of the 1812-14 War
and finding many descendants of Hessian soldiers among
them is not coming as a surprise. After all, those new citizens
were proud and eager to defend their new nation.
I just would like to tell you about this book I have, titled
"Charles de Salaberry" by J.Patrick Wohler, in which one
Lt. Benjamin Schiller is quoted as one hero in the Battle of
Chateauguay on pages 89 and 90.
Great stuff, great Canadian history, I really like you to find more
of those who participated.
