Historic Secord walk made '160 years ago LAURA SECORD QUEENSTON, Ont. was 160 years ago today that Laura Secord made her historic walk through enemy American lines to warn the British of an imminent attack in the War of 1812 and thus became Upper Canada's heroine. Mrs. Secord, wife of a Niag- ara frontier merchant, walked 19 miles from her home at the foot of Queenston Heights to the vicinity of St. Catharines, Ont. The story that she slipped through the battle lines leading a cow now is generally dis- missed as a myth. But for part of the journey, she was in fact accompanied by a niece, Eliza- beth Secord. The Secord house has been re- constructed here on its original foundations and is run as a tourist attraction by the candy firm that adopted her name. However, none of the furnish- ings have been definitely au- thenticated as b e 1 o n g i ng to Laura and her husband, James. In the Niagara Historical So- ciety museum at Niagara-on- the-Lake, seven miles north of here, where the Niagara River empties into Lake Ontario, cus- todian John Adams has gath- ered together some Secord heir- looms which have been well identified with silver spoons, a beaded purse, a floor runner and an illustrated and framed copy of The Lord's Pray- er What historical evidence of her life remains indicates she was, in fact, a brave woman, but not a campaigner for social reform or women's liberation as some of her followers later made her out to be. BORN IN U.S. She was born in Great Bar- ringtco, Mass., in 1775, and came with her family to Canada in 1795, marrying into the Se- cord family which also had set- tled here as United Empire Loy- alists. Her husband was wounded in a battle at Queenston in the winter of 1812-13, and she car- ried him from the battlefield to their home. It was while carin? for him that some American officers bil- .etted themselves in ti o j tome and she learned from their talk one night at dinner that an attack on the British was being planned. The British- led troops at that point had been pushed west as far as St. Catharines and the Niagara frontier was firmly in American hands. She set out early in the morn- ing of June 23, 1813, to get through the battle lines and warn Lieut. James FitzGibbon of the impending attack. She went first to St. David's, five miles from Queenston, ostensi- bly to see a sick half-brother, Charles Ingersoll. From there she walked with Elizabeth through the fields, bushland and marshes until she fell into a band of Indians near Shipmans Corners, now St. Catharines. She had to convince them she was not an American spy, but that she had an impor- tant message for Lieut. Fitz- Gibbon, whom she saw the next morning in time to warn of the attack. It was the turning point in the War of 1812. Some 500 Ameri- cans were taken prisoner and the enemy was subsequently driven back to the Niagara fron- tier. It was not until about 40 years later that Laura Secord began to be recognized for her exploit. For many years she sought vain- Collision sends youth to hospital A 17 year old Leihbridge youth is in satisfactory condi- tion today in St. Michael's General Hospital following a two-car intersection collision last night. Gregory Lyle Verstraee 810 22nd St. S. was one of four people taken to hospital after the accident but the others were treated for minor in- juries and released He was the driver of a ve- hicle southbound on 3rd St S. when his car was in collision with a vehicle eastbound on 3rd Ave., driven by Donald Wayne Roth, 20, of Coalhurst. Damage is estimated at ly for government recognition and support for her family in need because of James' wounds. She died Oct. 17, 1868.
