Richard Pierpoint Of Captain Runchey's Troops

The blog, Little Red Umbrella, featured a post about Richard Pierpoint (including a film clip):

"When the Americans invaded in 1812, Pierpoint petitioned Isaac Brock, the British commander: he wanted to be allowed to form a "Corps of Men of Colour" to fight on the Niagara border. (That's what's shown in the Heritage Minute.)"

 That blog post dovetailed quite nicely with my post, A Canadian Company Of Blacks.
