Attack on Old Fort Niagara and the Burning Of Lewiston

Lewiston 2013

Later that day  the 200th Anniversary of the Burning of Lewiston and the rescuing of the towns people by the local Tuscarora was re-enacted on Center Street .  The end of the street  battle scenario was the cue to officially unveil a new monument to their heroism .
