Example text

While basking in the aftermath of victory, Robinson encountered his elder brother, Peter, who had arrived overland with a party of militia. Together the brothers escorted their prisoners to the depot at Chippewa. While this first effortless victory may have made the militia confident of ultimate success, such confidence was not warranted by the overall situation. Sir George Prevost, by an ill-advised armistice with the American commander, General Dearborn, had defeated Brock's intention to maintain the initiative by attacking Fort Niagara.

Hunt's meeting at the Spa Fields on 15 November 1816 degenerated into a riot. Robinson, as a curious spectator, was on hand for this demonstration and was caught up in the mob that marched on Castlereagh's house and smashed the windows. Robinson did not conceal his disgust: 'I was in the midst of them, and greater cowards I never saw. '31 It is indicative, perhaps, of Robinson's insensitivity that not once in his English narrative did he mention the mass unemployment and near famine that existed in England in 1816.

Nevertheless, he assembled fifty militiamen in an attempt to dislodge the Americans who by now were firmly entrenched on the Heights. The American fire proved to be far too intense and, after one fusillade, the Canadians retreated. They bore with them the body of their fatally wounded commander. Robinson bitterly commented that this ill-conceived sally had been 'dictated rather by a fond hope of regaining what had been lost by a desperate effort than by any conviction of its practicability/ After these attacks and counter-attacks, both sides were forced to pause and regroup.
