Plaque Text

At the forks of the Nottawasaga River, Lt.-Col. Robert McDouall, Glengarry Light Infantry, built the flotilla of boats with which he effected the relief of the British garrison at Fort Michilimackinac, in May 1814. He then organized a second expedition which, on 19th July, captured Prairie du Chien, on the Mississippi.

Glengarry Landing has been designated part of a National Historic Event. "Nine Mile Portage and Willow Depot National Historic Event" was announced on Dec. 1, 2014, and will presumably be marked by a federal plaque from the Historic Sites and Monuments Board at some point, but likely elsewhere (Willow Creek Depot or maybe Barrie).
It's puzzling why these locations were named an "event" and not a national historic site, as Glengarry Landing was designated. These are places where things happened, not actions with nebulous locations. -Wayne
