Death Jacket, Canadian War Museum

A Hello to Arms: One of the first battles fought in the War of 1812 was at Queenston Heights, near Niagara Falls. The British commander, General Isaac Brock, defeated a much larger American force, though he himself was killed. This is the tunic Brock wore. If you look very closely, you can see the hole from the bullet that struck him in the chest.
