I would like to develop something around lieutenants in 1812. In the 49th Green Tigers we have Lt James Fitzgibbons who won at Beaver Dam after being warned by Laura Secord, Lt Dixie Ellis my ancestor who won v US cavalry at Cryslers Farm, and Lt John Sewell also at Cryslers Farm who went on to be a Seior justice at Quebec.
