British Landing

About

During the night of July 16-17, 1812, a small force of British regulars and several hundred voyageurs and Indian allies landed and occupied a height that overlooked Fort Mackinac and demanded its surrender. Lt. Porter Hanks, commander of the American garrison of 57 soldiers, had no known that war had been declared. Realizing that resistance was hopeless, Hanks capitulated without a fight.
