British Return After The Attack On Ogdensburg

From Select British documents of the Canadian War of 1812:


There was not an enterprise undertaken during the war that reflected more credit on the [British] troops engaged in it than the capture of Ogdensburg. Here was no midnight raid but a bold assault in the open day upon a defiant enemy, strongly posted and with every chance in his favor. ....nearly half of the Regulars engaged were Canadians or colonists. These were the men of the Glengarry and Newfoundland Regts who were not excelled in bravery or discipline by any corps that fought in Canada during the war. [Source]
