I happened to be in Canada for the War of 1812 Ceremony. It is a big deal up north of the border and I had a great time wandering around and taking pictures. When I photographed this man in period uniform I knew I had a keeper. This is my favorite photo for this date and one of my all time favorite portraits. In case you are wondering, the Battle of Queenston Heights was a major victory for the British.
