Prevost Across The Ice

British Soldier [Source]

From 1812: The War, and Its Moral: a Canadian Chronicleby William Foster Coffin:

The achievements of 1812 were the household words of my childish days. For three years, I grew up among  the men, and almost among the incidents of the time. In the Spring of 1815, from the Grand Battery at Quebec, I had watched the slow cavalcade which bore Sir George Prevost across the ice of the St. Lawrence, on his return to England.

The Coffin family chronicled here.
