Long Description:
The plaque reads: "Early on the morning of October 13th 1812, after galloping seven miles from Fort George, General Brock tethered his grey horse Alfred here in the village of Queenston in order to lead a charge on foot to repel the invading enemy, Brock was killed leading the attack.

Colonel Macdonell then took command until General Sheaffe could arrive from Fort George with reinforcements. Macdonell was mortally wounded and Alfred was killed, part of the price of having saved Canada on that fateful day."
