Fort Meigs

War of 1812 fort built in the aftermath of the Raisin. Official site
Siege of Fort Meigs wiki states British forces besieging consisted of 31 men of the Royal Artillery, 423 men of the 41st Regiment of Foot, 63 men of the Royal Newfoundland Regiment, 16 men from other units, and 462 Canadian militia. He also had roughly 1,250 American Indian warriors led by Shawnee chief Tecumseh. His artillery consisted of two 24-pounder guns (which had been captured at Detroit), nine lighter guns and two gunboats mounting 9-pounder guns.[7]

By the way this is a well shot film that is quite pleasing to the eye - give it whirl and see for yourself...
